Erasmus+ is the EU's program to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. The 2021-2027 program places a strong focus on social inclusion, the green and digital transitions, and promoting young people’s participation in democratic life. It supports priorities and activities set out in the European Education Area, Digital Education Action Plan and the European Skills Agenda. The program also supports the European Pillar of Social Rights, implements the EU Youth Strategy 2019-2027, develops the European dimension in sport.

The main goal of National Archaeological Institute with Museum at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (NAIM-BAS) is the complete study of the culture of tribes and peoples who have occupied present day Bulgaria from the remote past until the 18th century and the promotion of the Bulgarian cultural heritage. The present participation at the Erasmus + Program is inseparable part from our scientific and promotional activity performed in close collaboration and interaction with the museums in the country and abroad, national and foreign state institutions and various nongovernmental organizations. In our participation reflects the goal to transform the museum space into a place for education by representing in front of the international public the prehistoric, Thracian, late antique, medieval and Ottoman culture of the Bulgarian lands.
