MEPs demand more money for Erasmus

The European Parliament has voted in favour of a resolution calling for an increased budget for the Erasmus student mobility programme after 2020.

MEPs backed the resolution on the future of Erasmus, the current iteration of which is known as Erasmus+, by 411 votes to 107 in a plenary meeting on 14 September.

The wording of the resolution expressed regret over the low success rates of some Erasmus projects, and said that high demand for the programme could jeopardise its success. The resolution therefore called for additional regional and social funds to be used to bolster the programme’s budget in the next EU Multiannual Financial Framework from 2020.
