Financial Instruments for education and learning

September 2022

The fi-compass manual ‘Financial instruments for education and learning’ explores the scope of support that managing authorities can provide in the fields of education and learning. In the current challenge of taking further the education level of EU’s youth, as well as against the need to re-skill and up-skill the European’s workforce, ESF+ managing authorities can play a pivotal role. This report analyses the supply and demand sides of higher education and lifelong learning across Europe, highlights examples of financial instruments in the field (at both EU and local levels) and provides suggestions to managing authorities.
