RAY Network Coordination - Research-based analysis of European youth programmes

The RAY Network is an open and self-governed European youth research network. It was founded in 2008 with the aim to conduct accompanying research for the European youth programmes, starting with one research project – the Monitoring Surveys of Erasmus+ Youth in Action. Since then it has grown in projects and in partners. Currently 9 research strands, including the monitoring of Erasmus+ Youth and the European Solidarity Corps and other thematic projects are conducted by the RAY Network.

European Universities

The European Universities Initiative within the Erasmus+ Programme includes close and ambitious cooperation between higher education networks, increased student and staff mobility and strengthening the connections between education, research and innovations. The goal for the initiative is to promote fact-based economy, employment and welfare in Europe.
