European Commission’s proposal for EU budget published

The European Commission has published its first proposal for the future budget of the European Union.

The proposal published by the European Commission on May 2nd sets the priorities for the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) of the EU after the year 2020. Overall, the Commission proposes a long-term budget of €1,135 billion in commitments over the period from 2021 to 2027.

The Commission’s proposal also includes the propositions for the funding of education and the Erasmus+ programme. EAEA has previously advocated for more funding and better functioning funding programmes for adult education.

EAEA will further examine the proposal of the Commission and its implications for the adult education sector and will provide a statement later on.
