Eurydice is an information network supporting European cooperation in education by providing information on, and analysis of, European education systems and policies. It covers a wide range of themes on all phases of education from early childhood education and care to higher education and adult learning. In particular, Eurydice offers a resource for Erasmus+ participants looking for a common language to support communication and engagement with project partners.
The network operates through 41 national units based in all 37 countries participating in the Erasmus+ programme, coordinated by the European Commission’s Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency. The Eurydice unit for England, Wales and Northern Ireland is based at the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) and is funded by the UK Department for Education and the European Commission. Scotland has a separate Eurydice unit, reflecting the fact that its education system has always been distinct from those of its UK partner countries. The Eurydice unit for Scotland is based at the Scottish Government and is funded by the European Commission.
