Erasmus+ Impact Study, Youth Initiative and European Solidarity Corps:
The EAC would like to bring to your attention two new developments that we believe will be of interest to you.
First, we are delighted to announce that DG EAC has just launched the second Erasmus+ Impact Study (EIS+) in the field of higher education, which will run until 2018. Its goal is to measure the impact of the programme on its beneficiaries and participants using the memo methodology which has proven to be extremely successful in the first Erasmus Impact Study: http://ec.europa.eu/…/libr…/study/2014/erasmus-impact_en.pdf
Crucially, this second impact study will look at the international dimension of the programme for the first time. We would like you to participate in the online EIS+ survey, and to invite specific target groups within your institution to do the same. All you need to do, is to submit the linked survey:
Your cooperation is highly valuable for the success of the study. Please do not hesitate to get in touch should you have any questions.
Second, we are pleased to inform you that on 30 May the European Commission adopted a proposal to establish the European Solidarity Corps and as well as new initiatives on school and higher education. These new initiatives include a proposal on graduate tracking to help Member States collect information on what graduates do after their studies. The overall aim of these initiatives is to help Member States provide high quality and inclusive education for all young people through a series of concrete actions, so they acquire the knowledge and skills needed to participate fully in society, are able to respond to new opportunities and challenges opened up by for instance globalisation and technological change and can tailor their education to the needs of the labour market.

Thank you for attention.
Best regards from Brussels,
EAC international higher education team
