Commission invites citizens and organisations to give their views on Erasmus+ The European

Economy - published on 01 March 2017

The European Commission has today launched a public consultation to seek
views on Erasmus+, the EU’s flagship programme for
education, training, youth and sport (2014-2020), as well as its predecessor programmes (Lifelong Learning, Youth in Action, Erasmus Mundus and other international higher education programmes). The
results of the consultation will feed into the mid-term evaluation of Erasmus+ which is due to be finalised by the end of 2017. Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, Tibor
Navracsics, said: “We are assessing how effective Erasmus+ is in achieving its objectives, and how efficient in terms of costs. The programme is vital in enabling young people
in particular to lead independent lives as engaged citizens. And stakeholders’ views have an important role in shaping the future of this EU success story beyond 2020.” Young people,
students, teachers, youth workers, athletes, staff, employers, organisations and other interested parties can submit their contributions by 31 May 2017. The mid-term evaluation will be based on
various sources and data collection tools including surveys of participants, case studies, interviews, social media analysis as well as this consultation. Erasmus is celebrating its 30th
anniversary this year. More information on Erasmus+, the current programme, can be found here.
