Erasmus post-2020 proposal: new policy goals need even more investment

On 30 May the European Commission released its proposal for the 2021-2027 Erasmus programme. The European University Association (EUA) welcomes the draft as a solid basis for discussion on the programme’s future, including the much-needed budget increase. The Association finds, however, that policy makers should further reflect on how much it will cost to reach the objectives set out at the 2017 Gothenburg Social Summit and in the related Commission Communication on the creation of a European Education Area by 2025. Given the EU’s ambition for a more social Europe, EUA believes that the proposal requires a more explicit stance on social inclusion and equity.
