Key Action 1: Learning Mobility of Individuals is all about providing opportunities for individuals to improve their skills, enhance their employability and gain cultural awareness.
Under Key Action 1 organisations can apply for funding to run mobility projects. These projects enable organisations to offer structured study, work experience, job shadowing, training and teaching opportunities to staff and learners.
Beneficiaries are able to spend a period of time in another participating country gaining valuable experience of life, study and work with the aim of increasing the opportunities available to them in the future.
Key Action 1 covers the five fields of Higher Education, vocational education and training, schools, adult education and youth. It is important to note that target groups and activities for Key Action 1 vary by field.
Key Action 1 is the largest action in Erasmus+ with 63% of programme budget supporting its focus on increasing mobility and skills.
Key Action 2: Co-operation for Innovation and Exchange of Good Practices is all about enabling organisations to work together in order to improve their provision for learners and share innovative practices.
Under Key Action 2 organisations can apply for funding to work in partnership with organisations from other participating countries.
The projects funded under this Key Action will focus on sharing, developing and transferring innovative practices in education, training and youth provision between participating countries.

Here are some statistics that can help you in writing your project. In order to better understand your community needs, you need to access scientific studies about your community and region. In your project you should support your arguments about the needs in your community with scientific data.
Here are some studies about various subjects that are interesting for the Erasmus Plus Programme. You can find studies about adult education, nonformal education, sports etc. These studies will help you better prepare your Erasmus+ project. For example, if you prepare a project about sport in Erasmus+, it might be interesting for you to check the book "Physical Education and Sport at School in Europe". If you want to do a Comenius project, it might be interesting the "Study of the impact of Comenius centralised actions" book.
