Lithuanian EU Presidency priorities in education and training
Today Lithuania took over the Presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU) for the second semester of 2013. Since a deal on the future programme for education, youth, training and sport ‘Erasmus +’ was reached in the end of June, Lithuania will see the formal adoption of the programme under its Presidency. Furthermore, they will concentrate on the two main priorities set for education, i.e. quality and efficiency of the education and training systems.
