DG Education and Culture

Volume 450: debated on Tuesday 10 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills if he will place in the Library the latest compendium providing budgetary breakdowns for projects funded by DG Education and Culture in the UK. (90525)

There are no recent printed compendia giving budgetary breakdowns of all DG Education and Culture funded projects. Directly funded Socrates (education) project budgets up to 2003 are on the European Commission website http://ec.europa.eu/education/programmes/socrates/socrates_en.html The very numerous smaller projects at national level funded through the National Agency are listed at www.socrates-uk.net Leonardo da Vinci (vocational training) projects up to 2005, both direct and funded through the National Agency, can be found at http://www.leonardo.org.uk/arounduk/index.htm There are no compendia for the Youth programme, or the Culture 2000 programme which is the responsibility of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (Tessa Jowell). The European Commission’s Executive Agency manages all the DG’s directly-funded projects and should be able to provide more information on request, (email: eacea-info@ec.europa.eu).
