Citizens and organisations invited to express their views on Erasmus+ and shape the future of the programme

Erasmus students inscription for the Spring Semester of the Free University of Berlin

Today, the Commission has launched a public consultation to collect the views of citizens and organisations on Erasmus+, the EU’s flagship programme for education, training, youth and sport.

The public consultation will help the Commission gather information on the results of the novelties introduced in the current generation of the programme, such as European UniversitiesCentres of Vocational Excellence and Erasmus+ Teacher Academies. It will also give insights as to how the measures put in place to reinforce inclusion and to enhance simplification are progressing. Finally, it will aim at collecting citizens’ and stakeholders’ views on the programme’s resilience and flexibility as well as its contribution to tackling societal challenges, and their suggestions on the future programme.

Building on the call for evidence conducted in 2022, this public consultation will feed into the assessment of the Erasmus+ programme’s overall performance which will revolve around five criteria: effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, coherence, and EU added-value. It will also contribute to the mid-term evaluation of the ongoing programme (2021-2027) and the final evaluation of the previous programme (2014-2020).

In parallel to this consultation, other data collection exercises will be conducted to contribute to the evaluation process such as surveys, interviews, case studies, data analysis, and social media analysis.

The consultation is available in all 24 EU languages and will run for 12 weeks until 8 December 2023. More information are available here.
