Androulla Vassiliou, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, has highlighted the importance of EU-US education mobility programmes which enable young people from the European Union to study in the United States and vice-versa. In a video-conversation with the U.S. Ambassador to the EU, William E. Kennard, the Commissioner underlined the impact of such grant schemes in strengthening the transatlantic relationship. Highlights of their conversation can be viewed on the Commissioner’s website and on You Tube.
Around 6,000 students and academics from the EU and US are expected to benefit from grants for exchanges in 2006-2013.
