After the success of its 2014 broad public consultation, the Lifelong Learning Platform launched its 2015 Erasmus+ implementation survey on the 3rd of July. The purpose of this year’s survey was to evaluate how beneficiaries experienced the 2nd round of applications of the Erasmus+ programme. The consultation was closed on the 15th of September after having received 275 answers.
The results show how beneficiaries of the Programme value the Erasmus+ as a great opportunity to work with their peers’ across Europe. The Survey aims to provide decision-makers an evaluation, from its direct beneficiaries, on what works and what could be improved.
The beneficiaries particularly appreciate that the objectives and selection criteria of the Programme are relevant, the simplified architecture of the Programme and the use of lump sums.
However some figures are striking such as the fact that only 6% of respondents believe that the rules are applied in a harmonised ways across National Agencies, that the Programme Guide lacks clarity on important aspects such as the Intellectual Outputs or that the calculation of flat rates appears for many as insufficient and even unjust.
