What do students want from the new Erasmus+ programme?

Salon #1

- 19:00 ~ 20:00

The students are the future of higher education, and must, therefore, be heard on the topic of higher education’s future. But what does the broad student population of Europe want from a future European programme on education?

As the main beneficiaries of the Erasmus+ Programme, the students have many opinions on the biggest problems with the current programme, what actions EU must take on education, and how a dream Erasmus+ programme would look like. This salon will feature two of the biggest student organisations in Europe, the Erasmus Student Network and the European Student’s Union. As an institution dedicated to the dissemination of knowledge in Brussels, the Muntpunt Grand Café is the perfect host for our event.
