Eastern Dimension Mobility discussed at conference in Warsaw

Broader access of students, teachers, researchers, youth, sport and cultural actors from the Eastern Partnership countries to EU programmes have been the focus of the Eastern Dimension of Mobility Conference, which was held on 6-7 July in Warsaw.
The conference brought together officials from EU institutions and Member States, as well as stake-holders representing universities, research centres, national agencies of the EU programmes, cultural and educational institutions, NGOs and trade unions from the Eastern Partnership countries.
 
The participants called for increased involvement of the partner countries in the EU programmes supporting mobility, the Conference Conclusions said, and for opening successor programmes to the existing ones, which are “aimed at strengthening people-to-people contacts between the European Union and the partner countries, such as Lifelong Learning, Culture, Europe for Citizens and Media in the New Financial Perspective.
 
EU cooperation with the partner countries must be backed by “an appropriate form of new generation programmes in the fields of culture, education, youth, science, research and sport,” the Conclusions read, “as well as adequate funding for their implementation.”
 
The conference proved that furthering people-to-people contacts and institutional cooperation “contributes to strengthening civil society in the partner countries, promoting democracy at all levels and encouraging the creation of an open and creative society that is ready to cooperate.” (ENPI Info Centre)
