Erasmus post-2020: EUA calls for further reflection on programme proposal

EUA has issued a first response to the European Commission’s proposal for the EU’s next Erasmus programme. Released on 30 May, the proposal provides a solid basis for discussion on the 2021-2027 programme, including the much-needed increase in funding.
The Association has weighed the proposal against the university sector’s recommendations and finds that policy makers need to further reflect on how much it will really cost to fulfil the ambitious goals set out at the 2017 Gothenburg Social Summit and the related Commission Communication, in particular the creation of a “European Education Area”.
“Doubling the Erasmus budget is a move in the right direction, given that the current Erasmus+ programme is underfunded,” said Michael Gaebel, EUA Higher Education Policy Director. “However, the new Erasmus programme will have to cover the additional policy goals emphasised in Gothenburg, like the creation of networks of ‘European Universities’. Policy makers must make sure that we can do this without resulting again in unacceptably low success rates in parts of the programme.”
