  • Cluster 1: Strengthening Higher Education Quality. This cluster looks to encourage projects that serve to improve higher education.
  • Cluster 2: Spreading Erasmus+ and Widening Participation. This cluster aims to support the promotion of Erasmus+ and to increase participation in Erasmus+ initiatives and programmes.
  • Cluster 3: Increasing Social Inclusion, Empowerment, and Participation. This cluster aims to consider issues of social justice and work to address equity concerns and better serve marginalised populations.
  • Cluster 4: Capacity Building. This cluster aims to increase the capacity of volunteers, Erasmus+ participants, and youth to better engage and participate in varied opportunities.
