Question for written answer E-003383/2012
to the Commission
Rule 117
Monika Flašíková Beňová (S&D)

 Subject: Erasmus for All
 Answer in writing 

The European Commission recently presented a proposal for a programme called ‘Erasmus for All’. It is a European Union programme for education, professional training, youth and sport. However, the name of the programme, ‘Erasmus for All’, is confusing. The wider public in Europe associates the name Erasmus with activities related to higher education, the mobility of young academics and the context of formal education generally. The name of the programme is therefore simply not associated with professional training, with the possibilities of informal education or with the experiences of young, socially‑excluded people.

Does the Commission consider the name of the programme to be sufficiently apposite?
In view of the above, does the Commission plan to modify or correct the name of the programme?
