EUA’s Recommendations on the mid-term evaluation of the Erasmus+ Programme

From February to May 2017 the European Commission conducted a mid-term review of Erasmus+ in order to prepare the new programme for 2020.  The aim of this consultation was to receive the views regarding the Erasmus+ Programme (since 2014) and the predecessor EU programmes in education and training, youth and sport.

As a contribution to this discussion, EUA has published the document “Erasmus+ Mid-Term Review: EUA’s Recommendations” which includes 10 recommendations that were formulated in close collaboration with EUA’s members and partners, on how to improve the programme beyond 2020, as well as an explanatory note with further details on some of the recommendations.

This set of recommendations take into consideration the lessons learnt from the first years of implementation and the concrete needs of the stakeholders. They focus on enhancing the quality of outcomes, but also on ensuring the engagement and the satisfaction of all stakeholders, within and outside of higher education. In addition, they aim at enhancing the programme’s ability to function in and respond to a changing European and global framework, which will be of utmost importance for its relevance.

This document highlights areas for improvement that emerged from a consultation made by EUA in 2016 among its members on Erasmus + “EUA member consultation: A contribution to the Erasmus+ mid-term review
