A sustainable support for European organisations in “Erasmus for all” discussed by the Coalition
The 30 Stakeholders’ Coalition initiated by EUCIS-LLL and the Youth Forum following up on “Erasmus for all” gathered on 2 July and decided to increase the pressure on MEPs concerning a sustainable administrative support for European organisations. A letter has been sent to MEPs of the CULT Committee to defend the EU added value of European organisations and express their essential need for new funding schemes if operating grants were to be cut in the next programme. Stakeholders remain flexible to discuss eligibility criteria; Commissioner Vassiliou also showed some openness for further negotiations. See EUCIS-LLL and the Coalition’s positions and amendments.
