The European Commission has published the Erasmus+ Annual Report for 2015, that shows newest figures of the EU's education and training programme. To track progress made in the programme, the report covers the second year of implementation of Erasmus+, and provides an overview of all the activities implemented so far with regard to the 2015 calls, under the Annual Work Programme.
Main findings of the report with a focus to those developments in the Higher education sector, include:
During the second year of implementation around €2.1 billion were invested in over 19,600 projects involving 69,000 organisations - that left a difference of EUR 35 million short to the approved budget. Unused funds of 2015 have been transferred to the 2016 work programme to support the DG Education and Culture’s commitment to advance a resolution in the migrants/refugee crises. Erasmus+ and its predecessors that celebrate 30 years mark undoubtedly a key success of the European Project, that supported a total of 9 million people. In line with the key target of reaching 4 million mobilities by 2020, Tibor Navracsics, Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport aims to extend the number of beneficiaries with a focus on providing more opportunities to students of diverse economic and societal standing.
