  27. New Programme post-2013 - Issues for reflection (1) Show EU added value – show it is better to spend a € on the European level than at home!

  29. New programme post-2013 - Issues for reflection (3) Other newideas: Global mobility for Europeans: limited mobility outside participating countries Full cycle mobility/gap mobility – Erasmus Masters with loans More business-university cooperation Boost staff mobility + provide support for the organisation of staff training weeks
