Erasmus+ reaping results
Research published by European Union Programmes Agency (EUPA) during the 2015 annual conference shows the great impact Erasmus+ projects had on beneficiaries in Malta in its first year of implementation.
The evaluation exercise shows how the programme has been overall highly successful in promoting a European dimension among those who go on a mobility, as well as supporting a European labour force in increasing employability of those participating.
Through its projects, the programme also supported education actions at national and European level. The study showed that all the eligible sectors have benefitted from the programme.
The significant impact achieved also helped the EUPA and the Erasmus+ to gain further prominence as well as play a greater role in the educational field in Malta.
For 2015 the European Commission allocated to Malta a budget of around €5.8 million for the five sectors that fall under its remit.
