An agreement in the European budget for 2013 has been reached and an advanced payment amounting 6 billion euro for the budget 2012 will be contributed. Despite all the discrepancy of last few weeks, the EU will continue to fund the highly discussed programmes like Erasmus.


The European agree the 2012 retroactive budget and 2013 budget at short term

According to AFP (French News Agency), the European Commission announced that a common understanding has been found regarding the advance for the 2012 EU budget as well as the 2013 budget. Before this agreement is implemented, “The project must be ratified by the member states and by the European Parliament within the next few days”, wrote Patrizio Fiorilli, the spokesman for the commissioner charged in financial programming and budgetary issues, in his Twitter account.

The agreement foresees an advance amounting 6 billion euro for the 2012 budget and 133 billion Euros for expenditure covering the year 2013, an amount that is 5 billion euro less than the Commission’s was hoping for (138 billion euro).

This common understanding enables the EU to pursue financing Erasmus programme that currently lacks 90 million euro as well as to reimburse the following amounts:
- 1,47 billion euro for Spain
- 1,58 billion euro for Poland
- and 508 billion euro for Greece


What is comes to Erasmus programme that was in danger earlier this year, the Commission remains positive. It guarantees that the students who have stayed abroad between January and September 2012 will not face any reimbursement problems. Even more, the Commission remains positive regarding the next year, however averting that “due to persisting shortage of available funding, the universities and other higher education establishments are likely to cut down the number of available programme places for the second academic semester 2012-2013 or to decrease the amount of Erasmus grants”.
