Help us with the Mid-term Evaluation Study of the Erasmus+ Programme in Ireland. As an important part of the evaluation, we need to know the views of students, staff and organisations that have participated in either Erasmus+ or in one of the previous programmes (Lifelong Learning, Youth in Action). We'd like to hear if your experience had an impact afterwards on your work, learning, and cultural and social awareness. We'd also like to know the impact of the programme on organisations participating. We're very conscious of your time, so our survey will take you 5 minutes only! Many thanks in advance! http://ow.ly/ct5x30ae8bh
