About the session

About the session

For more than 30 years the Erasmus programme has had a major impact on higher education in Europe and is one of the most successful actions of its kind.

The current programme period is approaching its end and the floor opens for discussions and statements about where the programme will go from here.

In this session, we will showcase some examples from the latest latest programme generation, seen from the perspective of programme coordinators and industry partners, to inspire a debate about the possible future developments and challenges of the programme.

Positive and negative aspects will be discussed to assess and highlight the innovative potential expected from Erasmus also in its future shaping.
