Lifelong Learning Interest Group - Investing in education and lifelong learning - How can the next MFF support Europe’s learners?
This third meeting of the Lifelong Learning Interest Group in 2018 will focus on how the next EU Multiannual Financial Framework and generation of EU programmes can support education, training and lifelong learning. This ranges from the flagship Erasmus+ programme to others which touch on various dimensions of learning such as Horizon Europe and the Rights and Values programme, or where improving access to and the quality of education is among their specific objectives, namely the European Social Fund+. Recent developments at the European level - including the proposed vision of a European Education Area and the first ever Education Summit - show the growing recognition of the role that learning in all its forms can play in securing a better future for Europe’s citizens, as well as the immense benefit of EU cooperation in complementing Member States’ policies in this area. This meeting, which will feature for the first time EC Vice President Jyrki Katainen, will therefore offer an opportunity to reflect on how the next EU budget can foster this potential. Identifying fruitful synergies between the various funding programmes - including how such synergies could be put into practice - will also be explored.
