MEPs confirmed that the funds for the next Erasmus+ programme should be tripled to allow more people to take part, better adapting grants to their needs.
The Parliament’s main objectives is that more young people take part in the different learning mobility schemes. It therefore proposes a detailed set of measures to lift all economic, social and cultural barriers:
. National strategies to foster participation of people with fewer opportunities
. New Erasmus actions
. Co-funding from other European programmes
The final text must be negotiated and agreed with the Council under the next parliamentary term.
