TWENTY SEVENTH REPORT

9 June 1998

  By the Select Committee appointed to consider Community proposals, whether in draft or otherwise, to obtain all necessary information about them, and to make reports on those which, in the opinion of the Committee, raise important questions of policy or principle, and on other questions to which the Committee considers that the special attention of the House should be drawn.

ORDERED TO REPORT

STUDENT MOBILITY IN THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY
11946/97Communication from the Commission: Towards a Europe of Knowledge

INTRODUCTION

  1.    The Community programme, Socrates-Erasmus (originally called Erasmus), was set up in 1987 to encourage exchanges of students between universities and other higher education institutions in Member States. Other forms of co-operation are also encouraged, and the programme extends to some other European countries which are not members of the European Union. Socrates-Erasmus expires at the end of 1999, and a new programme is currently being developed to replace it. The Commission has published its guidelines for the new programme in a Communication entitled Towards a Europe of Knowledge. This Committee decided to examine the proposals for the new programme.
