The Erasmus programme is one of the greatest achievements of the European Union.

As the new Multiannual Financial Framework will begin in 2021, a new era for EU youth and sport funding will take up soon.

The short analysis is complemented with our recommendations in order to strengthen youth voice throughout the lengthy EU inter-institutional negotiations. Take a look at our position paper here.
