What’s new in Brussels? opens ACA’s 2019 event season

In 2019, ACA will once again offer a rich and diverse programme of international seminars and conferences.  As tradition has it, the programme cycle will be opened by the legendary seminar What’s new in Brussels? Recent developments in European policies and programmes. The seminar will take place in Brussels on 1 February 2019. 

This year’s What’s new? will be predominantly focused on the successor programme of the present Erasmus+ scheme. The legislative procedure to set up Erasmus 2021-2027 is in full swing and 2019 will be the decisive year in shaping the programme. Amongst other, the seminar will address the following questions: 

  • how much more money than its predecessor will the programme have? Double, treble as much? And how much of this will higher education get?
  • What will the new ‘European universities’ really look like?   
  • Will the basic ‘3--action’ structure remain in place?
  • Will the programme reach persons usually not benefiting from mobility (‘inclusiveness’)?
  • Will bureaucracy be reduced (‘simplification’)?
  • Will ‘international cooperation’ with countries outside Europe be further strengthened? 

Once again, ACA has enlisted highly competent speakers and panellists. Many are from the bodies which create together the new Erasmus, such as EU Commission staff, the European Parliament, national governments and national agencies, amongst others.  

Traditionally, What’s new in Brussels? fills up fast. We suggest you register soon, to secure a place and to benefit from the early bird deadline which ends on 21 December.
