EUA welcomes Commission initiative putting education at the heart of a more social Europe

The European University Association (EUA) applauds the European Commission’s proposal to put education front and centre on Europe’s social agenda. With its Communication on “Strengthening European Identity through Education and Culture”, published ahead of the European Social Summit, the Commission gives new impetus to European cooperation through education and culture and outlines its vision of a European Education Area for 2025. Given the common goal to provide quality education with equal access for all, EUA finds the European initiative timely and highly relevant. Improving education at all levels, with a clear emphasis on lifelong learning and inclusiveness is key to responding to challenges Europe is facing such as changing labour markets and digitalisation.
