EU programmes

The only EU mobility and volunteering programmes for youth to which Romania participates are the European Solidarity Corps and Erasmus Plus. Over 4.69 million Euro have been allocated for the European Solidarity Corps programme in Romania for 2019 and over 1.79 million Euro in 2018. The allocation for 2020 was over 5 million Euro and for 2021 over 3.77 million Euro.


The monitoring of volunteering European projects is being ensured through the reports uploaded by the participants in the Mobility Tool. The National Agency for Erasmus Plus and the European Solidarity Corps is also conducting research and monitoring, including constant surveys of mobility and volunteering participants satisfaction with the projects they participated in.


The main agency in charge of organising and monitoring the EU programmes at national level is the National Agency: Agentia Nationala pentru Programe Comunitare în Domeniul Educatiei si Formarii Profesionale.
