SHORT JUSTIFICATION

1. Erasmus+ - a European Union flagship programme

The Erasmus+ Programme is a European Union success story, with an ever-increasing number of people having participated since the scheme’s inception in 1987 and the Programme repeatedly appearing amongst the Union’s primary achievements in Eurobarometer opinion polls. Erasmus+ forges a sense of European belonging, enabling mobility of learners and staff and building cultural bridges; it improves employment prospects for its participants and it fosters cooperation amongst education and training institutions, youth organisations and sports clubs and federations across the continent and around the world. Against this backdrop, the further strengthening of this particular programme – both financially and otherwise – had been a priority for the European Parliament throughout the negotiations on the multiannual financial framework 2021-2027.

2. Inter-institutional negotiations

Following the adoption of Parliament’s first reading position on 28 March 2019, inter-institutional negotiations took place from October 2019 to December 2020. After five rounds of trilogues, a provisional agreement was reached with the German Council Presidency on 11 December 2020.

The text of the provisional agreement was presented to and subsequently confirmed by the Committee on Culture and Education on 11 January 2021. On the basis of the Committee’s approval, the Chair of the CULT Committee, in a letter to the Council Presidency, indicated that she would recommend to the Plenary that the Council’s position should be approved without amendments, provided that it is in conformity with the provisional agreement reached between the two institutions. Following legal-linguistic verification, the Council on 13 April 2021 formally adopted its position in accordance with the provisional agreement.

3. Recommendation

As Council’s position is in conformity with the provisional agreement reached during the inter-institutional negotiations, the Rapporteur recommends endorsing it without amendments.
