Discussing new opportunities offered by Erasmus+ in Berlin

04 December - 05 December 2013, Berlin, Germany (DG EAC)


This seminar has been postponed to early 2014, new dates will be announced later.

In January 2014, the European Commission will launch Erasmus +, its new programme for education, training, youth and sport. Erasmus+ will bring together a range of existing iniatives in these areas in a streamlined and more userfriendly structure.

The new programme will focus on mobility, cooperation and policy reform. With a total budget of 14.5 bn euros, it will provide funding for four million people to study, train, gain work experience or volunteer abroad between 2014 and 2020 - almost twice as much as under the current programme.
The programme will foster cooperation between the world of education and the world of work to increase the relevance of Europe's education and training systems and ensure that practical learning and education is brought to the forefront. In the area of sports, the programme will particularly focus on cooperation and activities in grassroots sport.
Ahead of the upcoming launch of the new programme, the European Journalism Centre in co-
operation with the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Education and Culture, is
hosting a media seminar for a specialised group of 33 journalists from the EU28 and
Iceland, Liechtenstein, Turkey, Norway and Switzerland covering issues related to education, youth and sport. Eligible journalists are encouraged to register and cover the event.

The seminar will feature panel discussions, keynote speeches and breakout sessions bringing
together EU institutions and national governments, academics, experts and beneficiaries from the current programmes for education and training (the Lifelong learning programme), sport and youth, businesses, NGOs, public and private institutions as well as representatives from the world of sport.

In light of the current European economic and social situation, with the increasingly demanding labour market, the seminar will highlight:
• The emphasis of the new programmes on mobility and skills development
• How to increase the link between education and the entrepreneurial labour market
• Maximising the performance and international attractiveness of Europe's higher education institutions
• Promoting the international mobility of students, trainees & teachers

Additionally, the journalists will be able to attend this year’s ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN is the event for learning professionals to discover innovative solutions, absorb new thinking and bring home ideas in order to take action, implementing change in the field of technology and learning.

ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN is the largest global conference on technology supported learning and training for the corporate, education and public service sectors. Now in its 19th year, the conference will bring together over 400 speakers and more than 2000 participants from over 100 countries

The seminar will be held from 20-21 November 2013 in Paris. For more information, please contact Clara Maxwell at [email protected]
