Our mission is to help citizens and organisations, through EU funds, to transform good ideas into successful projects that change society for the better. Our vision is that only through continuous learning, training and strengthening of human and democratic potential with the help of science and technology can we face the challenges of tomorrow.
We are a public institution that promotes and nationally implements decentralised activities of EU programmes and other international programmes in the fields of education and training, youth, science and sport:
- Erasmus+, the EU's largest programme for education, training, youth and sport for the period 2021-2027.
- The European Solidarity Corps (ESC), a programme that gives youth the opportunity to volunteer and work for the common good.
- We also support the implementation of EU’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation – Horizon Europe.
The following national authorities are responsible for the strategic management of the Erasmus+ and the ESC:
- Ministry of Science and Education – for the fields of science, education and training
- Central State Office for Demography and Youth – for the field of youth.
Since its establishment in 2007, we have informed, promoted and educated citizens, institutions and organizations from the Republic of Croatia and encouraged and trained them for active participation in programmes for which we are competent:
- we announce public calls for awarding financial support
- we advise and train potential beneficiaries
- we support the development of project proposals
- we conduct a selection of received applications
- we contract selected projects and allocate funds
- we monitor the implementation of approved projects and monitor the regularity of spending allocated funds.
Our work is best illustrated by figures, particularly those we are especially proud of: almost 100 % contracted available funds for the projects on the territory of the Republic of Croatia.
