EAEA Country reports published

“Adult Education in Europe 2017 – A Civil Society View” publication combines information from different European countries to demonstrate the state of adult education in Europe.

Annually, EAEA launches a survey for its members to create specific country reports for various European countries. The reports outline developments in adult education in different European countries over the past year, giving insight into the state of adult education across Europe and allowing comparisons between countries. The country report 2017 gathers information from 26 countries.

The country specific information on adult education policy offers opportunities to influence the European Semester, the cycle of yearly economic and structural policy coordination from the European Commission.

The publications are available as an electronic version (PDF) and as a hard copy at EAEA Secretariat in Brussels.

With the publication you can:

  • Inform your colleagues across Europe – but also policy makers at different levels – on what you think about the main developments in adult education in your country;
  • Compare your situation with other organisations in Europe;
  • Propose ideas and good practices to colleagues and policy-makers across Europe;
  • Additionally, in a few years a more long-term comparison of developments will be possible.

Survey reveals that European ALE organisations struggle with access to EU funding opportunities

In a recent survey conducted across adult learning and education (ALE) organisations in Europe in the framework of the Path2EU4AE project, a concerning revelation has emerged: many organisations lack crucial information about various European Union funding programmes available to them. While the Erasmus+ programme is widely known and used in the sector, other funding programmes such as CERV (Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values) and Creative Europe are still largely unknown to many organisations.

Stop taxing the right to adult learning and education!

The national and regional interpretations of the European Union's VAT Directive lead to financial uncertainties and problems for many ALE organisations in Europe. We demand a revision of the VAT Directive to exempt non-formal and non-commercial adult learning and education from VAT.
