Montenegro joins the Lifelong Learning Programme
After Serbia in December 2011, and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia in May 2012, on 24 May 2013 Montenegro signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) establishing its full participation, for the budget year 2013, in all the actions of the Lifelong Learning Programme
which are not managed by National Agencies (except eTwinning). Such a participation, on an equal footing with the Member States, is part of the pre-accession strategy for the countries which are candidate or potential candidates for accession to the EU.
Albania may join the programme in the coming weeks, subject to a decision of its Government authorising the signature of a such a MoU.
Bosnia and Herzegovina opted for participation in 2014 only, in the future Erasmus for All programme.
