European Commission launches public consultation on Erasmus+
09 March 2017
The European Commission has opened its public consultation on the Erasmus+ programme. The purpose is to gather comments and perspectives from stakeholders and the public on the programme’s relevance, effectiveness and efficiency. The input will feed into the ongoing mid-term evaluation and serve to design the Erasmus+ successor programme in 2020.
In 2016, EUA consulted its members on Erasmus+ and published the “EUA member consultation: A contribution to the Erasmus+ mid-term review .” The survey found that the Programme has brought a number of improvements compared to its predecessors. However, it also highlights areas for improvement, for which EUA proposes 10 recommendations for enhancing Erasmus+ in 2020 and beyond. On behalf of its members, EUA will communicate these findings through the public consultation and encourages its individual members to also take part in the survey.
The European Commission consultation also covers the Erasmus+ predecessor programmes. The deadline to participate is 31 May 2017.
