The Erasmus+ program is implemented by different actors with common and separate responsibilities at European and national level.
The European Commission has the umbrella responsibility for implementing the Erasmus+ program. She manages the budget and is responsible for continuously setting program priorities, goals, and criteria. In addition, it leads and oversees the overall implementation, follow-up and evaluation of the program at European level.
The Education and Culture Executive Agency is specifically responsible for implementing the centralized actions of the Erasmus+ program. Also, the Executive Agency is obliged to publish special calls for project applications at the European level on its website.
In addition, it takes care of the preparation of studies and impact analyzes for the program, as well as the dissemination and use of program results at the European level.
Much of the Erasmus+ program is mainly implemented at a decentralized level. Each Program State has designated one or more National Agencies for this purpose. Together with the Commission, these agencies form the European program implementation network.
National agencies promote the program at the national level. To this end, they provide, inter alia, relevant information for applicants and present the possibilities and effects of EU programs.
National agencies also offer applicants professional support and advice. A special approach to support refers to the youth sector that covers the entire phase of the project (from project development to project implementation).
Agencies are therefore important actors for the qualitative further development of the program.
In the Republic of Serbia, the Foundation Tempus is an organization in charge of implementing and promoting the Erasmus + program.
