The European Commission proposes a new economic strategy in Europe
The European Commission has launched the Europe 2020 strategy in order to get out of the crisis and prepare the EU economy for the next decade.
The European Commission identifies three engines of growth, to be put in place through concrete actions at European and national level: smart growth (promoting knowledge, innovation, education and the digital society), sustainable growth (making our production more efficient in terms of resources and simultaneously relaunching our competitiveness) and inclusive growth (encouraging participation in the labor market, the acquisition of skills and the fight against poverty). This battle for growth and jobs requires involvement at the highest political level and the mobilization of all stakeholders in Europe. Five objectives are set which show which targets the EU should reach by 2020 and on the basis of which progress will be assessed.
EUROPE 2020: FROM LLP ERASMUS TO ERASMUS +
This is the context within which the European Parliament established, with Regulation no. 1288/2013m, , a Program in support of education, training, youth and sport called "Erasmus +" replacing the "Lifelong Learning Program" (LLP).
The Program integrates the seven existing programs so far: LLP (Comenius, Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Grundtvig), Youth in Action, Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink and bilateral cooperation with industrialized countries and gives itself a new structure focused on three key activities, transversal to the different sectors:
Key activity 1 - Individual mobility for learning purposes.
Key activity 2 - Cooperation for innovation and good practices
Key activity 3 - Policy reform.
Opportunities for international study, training, teaching and volunteering will therefore be funded. The main recipients of Erasmus + are university students, professional school students, trainers, teachers, teachers, trainees and young workers.
Within the framework of the Erasmus + Program, Key Activity 1 - Individual Mobility aims to encourage the mobility of students for study and traineeship purposes, allowing them to spend a study period (from 3 to 12 months) at a Higher Education Institute from one of the countries participating in the program.
