Jan 31, 2018 | News

(31 January 2018) – The European Commission has today adopted the mid-term evaluation of Erasmus+, the EU’s flagship programme for education, training, youth and sport (2014-2020).


The report shows that the programme is well on track to meet its target of supporting 4 million learners, teachers and trainers by 2020.

Moreover, Erasmus+ proves to be highly beneficial by supporting participants’ transition to employment and contributing to the development of a European identity among EU citizens.

The report also highlights that Erasmus+ has a strong added value compared to what could be achieved by the participating countries on their own in boosting learning mobility and transnational cooperation between educational institutions.

The conclusions of the mid-term evaluation report are based on over a million responses from all interested parties.
