• Better education for “smart, sustainable and inclusive growth”

    What is the contribution of European programmes in Serbia?

    The EU is making great efforts to improve the development potential of human capital in the Member States and candidate countries. Serbia participates intensively in EU programs for the improvement of education. Only through the Erasmus + program, Serbia ranks first in the entire region in terms of the number of realized projects, allocated money and the number of exchange students.

    What benefits has Serbia had so far from participating in EU education programs? Do exchange programs, like Erasmus +, contribute to the “brain drain” or lead to the improvement of Serbia’s human capital? What is the impact of exchange and mobility on the development of general, and especially educational competencies? What steps does Serbia need to take to advance these policies and how is the European Union helping it? Given that Erasmus + ends this year, what does the EU have in the plan for the next period and how will Serbia be included?
