Education Council: Erasmus for All and education for growth and jobs

Institutional news -

On 15 February 2013, the EU’s education ministers adopted Conclusions on investing in education and training, in response to the recent Commission communication “Rethinking Education”. It also held a policy debate on “Education and Skills for Jobs, Stability and Growth“, in the context of the European Semester and in particular the education aspects of the 2013 Annual Growth Survey. The Council also took note of the state of play concerning the proposal for a regulation establishing “Erasmus for All“. The negotiations between the Council, the European Parliament and the Commission will start on 19 February 2013. Since there is significant common ground between the European Parliament’s and the Council’s positions, there are reasonable hopes that an agreement is reached before the summer, which would enable important preparatory work by the Commission to be completed in time for the programme to begin, as proposed, on 1 January 2014. Concerning the European Council agreement on the MFF of 8th of February, the Council highlighted that even though the EU budget has been decreased, the next EU budget for education will experience a substantial increase compared to the MFF 2007-2013.
