The EUPA was made in charge of coordinating the implementation of the European Funding program Erasmus+ in 2014, later the Agency began coordinating the implementation of KETS.

The Parliamentary Secretary for European Funds Aaron Farrugia praised the Erasmus+ programme from which schools, youth, those enrolled in vocational courses, students studying in tertiary level as well as adults are benefiting from. Farrugia was visiting the EUPA office.
