Erasmus Salon: Erasmus in post-pandemic Europe

Aug 27, 2020

Erasmus Salon I #Erasmus500 I Register now

3 September 2020, 17:30-19:30 Brussels time/CEST

The Covid-19 outbreak has brought the most radical disruption in the history of student mobility – leaving countless international students stranded. But even before the pandemic, the Erasmus programme was not considered accessible and inclusive by many and the new proposed budget for education, youth, sport and culture programmes is still considered not ambitious enough to make Erasmus+ a reality for all.

During this virtual Erasmus Salon, Members of the European Parliament will express their opinions on the ongoing MFF negotiations and Erasmus+. We will look at the inclusiveness of the current and future Erasmus programme:

  • How is Covid-19 affecting the future of student mobility?
  • What are we currently failing to address to make Erasmus+ inclusive and more transparent?
  • Is the Erasmus grant system fit for purpose?
  • What can we do with the current proposed EU’s budget?
  • And more importantly, what can we do to change the rules?

Join the discussion with MEPs and more high-level speakers to explore the answers to these questions at the Erasmus Salon on September 3rd at 17:30 Brussels time/CEST.
