The large-scale studies based on the feedback from nearly 77 000 students and staff and over 500 organisations measure and analyse the impact the Erasmus+ programme has on its main beneficiaries.

Results show how the EU programme helps prepare young Europeans for the new digital era and thrive in their future careers.
