Lifelong Learning Platform | LLLP - European Civil Society for Education


Erasmus+ is the new EU programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport for 2014-2020. It brings together seven previous programmes, among them the Lifelong Learning Programme, Youth in Action and Erasmus Mundus. The Lifelong Learning Platform follows up on the advancement of Erasmus+ and advocates for a better access and transparency of the programme and more coordination and harmonisation between National Agencies.

Each year, the Lifelong Learning Platform publishes an online survey aimed to assess the implementation of the Erasmus+ programme. It shares the results with the European Union and the National Agencies in order to push for a simplification and harmonisation of the programme. In partnership with the European Youth Forum, it also runs a Coalition of Stakeholders that aim to share the views of stakeholders on the Mid-Term Review of the Multiannual Financial Framework and of the EU programmes.

  • Statement – The Future of the Erasmus Plus

    The Lifelong Learning Platform: European Civil Society for Education welcomes the European Commission’s proposal for the next Erasmus+ programme (2021-2027), including the commitment to double the budget, widen access to smaller organisations through “small-scale partnerships” and improve outreach to learners with fewer opportunities and resources. Building on prior statements, we nevertheless perceive two main areas of the proposal which require clarification and further commitment to ensure the programme delivers a high impact and added value for Europe’s learners.

  • Mid-term evaluation of the Erasmus+ Programme published

    The European Commission has published the mid-term evaluation report of the Erasmus+ Programme. The evaluation builds on over a million responses to questions related to the most well-known programme of the Union, and it establishes itself as the most comprehensive and recent source of evidence.
    The main highlights from the Commission are:

    Erasmus+ is felt as to be supportive in both employment terms and active citizenship
    Evidence shows that Erasmus+ is more coherent, relevant and partly more efficient and simpler than its predecessors.
