Erasmus + Collaborate or Collapse


The UK National Agency Ecorys has now started to promote the new Erasmus + programme. Scheduled to operate from 2014 to 201 it will replace the old Life Long Learning programmes by bringing together a number of strands such as Leonardo and Grundtvig.

As such is going to be the main focus for many smaller organisations who are trying to access EU funding. Ecorys are doing a great job getting the message out but the big question is will Erasmus + make it easier for the smaller organisations to access EU funds or will it make it harder and thereby drive the funds to the larger organisations.

For all the latest up to date information see the UK Erasmus + web site at:

Over the next few weeks we will be looking at this question and seeing how we might overcome any potential problems that might occur in adjusting to the new programmes.
