National Agency survey about cooperation with neighbouring partner countries - outcomes

In summer 2015, the regional SALTO Resource Centres asked Erasmus+ Youth National Agencies' (NAs) to reflect about how the cooperation with neighbouring partner regions is currently seen and managed. Our aim was to raise attention about the place and meaning of the cooperation with neighbouring partner regions in the Programme and to (re-)create communication with National Agencies in this field. We invited NAs to complete a short survey about the current situation of this cooperation in their countries and to nominate a contact person for this aspect of the Programme. 22 of 35 National Agencies participated in the survey.

  • 78% of NAs indicated that organizations from their country have a high interest in cooperation with neighbouring regions. 
  • 90% of NAs see the benefit of a NA staff meeting focusing on this aspect of the Programme.
