Erasmus+ is the European Union’s program in the fields of Education, Training, Youth and Sport for the period 2014-2020. Erasmus+ connects the former EU programs for Lifelong Learning, Youth, Sports, and the European cooperation programs for Higher Education. The central processes such as thematic networks and curriculum projects are managed by the European Commission and its executive agencies in Brussels. In Germany, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) participates on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) by acting as a national agency for Erasmus+.

Dresden University of Applied Sciences (D DRESDEN01) is holding a valid Erasmus+ Charter for the years 2014 - 2021 (EUC number: 29744).
