EEA EFTA Comment on the Future of the EU PROGRESS Programme

Published 31-05-2011
A continued commitment to cross-cutting issues such as gender equality and non-discrimination and increased emphasis on mutual learning activities and broad stakeholder participation were among the recommendations suggested by the EEA EFTA States in the Comment they submittted to the Commission's Public Consultation on a possible successor to the EU Programme for Employment and Social Solidarity - PROGRESS (2007-2013).

As full participants in the current Programme on Employment and Social Solidarity, the EEA EFTA States are of the opinion that a continuation of most of the current activities under the PROGRESS Programme will be essential for achieving the aims of the Europe 2020 Strategy and that the successor instrument should build on past success.

Earlier in May this year, the EEA EFTA States also submitted Comments on the European Commission’s communication on early childhood education and care.
