Basic overview

Putting the initiative into perspective

In this section we want to help you to put our goals into perspective. To understand Goal 1 it will be helpful to get a better idea of what the EU Budget looks like today. In order to understand Goal 2 better it is helpful to learn more about the different exchange programmes financed from the EU Budget today. And Goal 3 can only be fully understood if one knows what an Open Method of Coordination is and how it works.
