Question for written answer E-001664-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
David McAllister (PPE)

 Subject:  Support programmes for exchanges in the European Union
 Answer in writing 

EU exchange programmes enable young people to get to know life in another Member State and to engage with the culture of that country. Exchanges within the EU create a common identity, thereby promoting European integration. However, young people from disadvantaged families in particular often have little prospect of participating in existing programmes.

1. What measures does the Commission consider realistic to enable young people to spend a short period of at least two weeks in another Member State?

2. What measures does the Commission plan to improve the visibility of Erasmus + and better inform young people about the support provided?

3. How does the Commission view the idea of a simplified application procedure for Erasmus + in order to reduce red tape and thus enable more young people to enjoy a subsidised stay abroad?
