LLP had a budget of € 7000 millions for the period 2007-2013, and is the successor to the Socrates, Leonardo da Vinci and eLearning programmes.
Grants and subsidies are awarded to projects and activities that foster interchange, promote bilateral and multilateral partnerships, foster trans-national mobility of individuals and promote quality in education and training systems throughout Europe.
The programme is built on four pillars, or sub-programmes. For more information please visit:

• The Comenius programme for pupils, teachers, schools and related institutions/ organisations (pre-school and school education up to the level of the end of upper secondary education)
• The Erasmus programme for students, scholars, professors, universities and related institutions/organisations (higher education, including trans-national student placements in enterprise)
• The Leonardo da Vinci programme for apprentices, workers, employees and related institutions/organisations (vocational education and training).
• The Grundtvig programme for adults, teachers and related institutions/organisations active in the field of adult education.

These four pillars are joined by the ‘transversal programme’, which pursues 4 key activities:
Policy cooperation and innovation (KA1)
Languages (KA2)
Information and communication technologies - ICT (KA)
Dissemination and exploitation of results (KA4)

• And by the Jean Monnet Programme  that stimulates teaching, research and reflection on European integration in higher education institutions worldwide.
