Lifelong Learning Platform | LLLP - European Civil Society for Education

Erasmus+

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.
