Short history

Beginnings - before the EU

Socrates

Our institution's start was in 1996, when three European programs were launched in Romania: Socrates, Leonardo da Vinci and Youth for Europe. Initially we started with the administration of the Socrates program, the European Union funding program dedicated to mobility projects in education. That is why for eight years our name was Socrates National Agency. The main components of Socrates were Erasmus (dedicated to university education), Comenius (dedicated to school education) and Grundtvig (dedicated to school education).

Leonardo da Vinci

Launched at the same time as the Socrates program, Leonardo da Vinci was managed by the Leonardo National Center. However, it was in 2004 that the Leonardo National Center was integrated into the Socrates National Agency, giving birth to the National Agency for Community Programs in the Field of Education and Vocational Training, a name that has remained since then. In short, 'the Agency' or 'NA'. This new institution managed for two years, until the end of 2006, both programmes: Socrates and Leonardo da Vinci.

Youth for Europe and Youth

The third program of the European Union dedicated to youth was also launched in 1996, under the name Youth for Europe. It was managed by the Agency for European Cooperation in the field of Youth (EUROTIN). In 2000, a new generation of programmes was launched and the name changed into Youth. For four years, from 2002 to 2006, the program is taken over by a new structure: the National Agency for Supporting Youth Initiatives (ANSIT).

European programs dedicated to education, training and youth after joining the EU

In 2007, Socrates and Leonardo da Vinci were integrated into the Lifelong Learning Program and Youth became Youth in action. It is in 2007 that both programmes are integrated, for the first time, in the same institution: the National Agency for Community Programmes in the Field of Education and Vocational Training. In 2014 the degree of integration increased, the Lifelong Learning and Youth in action programmes becoming Erasmus+, with ANPCDEFP being the same institution that provides operational management.
