The Eurydice network is the European Commission's information network on education in Europe. The network gathers, monitors, processes and circulates reliable and readily comparable information on education systems and policies across Europe. The network forms part of Erasmus+, the EU programme for education, training, youth and sport.
The Eurydice network consists of 42 national units based in all 38 countries participating in the Erasmus+ programme. It is managed by the EU Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) in Brussels, which coordinates its comparative publications and databases. These include:
Further information about each of these outputs can be found on our publications pages.
Eurydice at NFER is the Eurydice Unit for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Based at the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER), the Unit is jointly funded by the UK Department for Education and the European Commission.
The Eurydice at NFER team maintains the description of national education systems for England, Wales and Northern Ireland and contributes to Eurydice network publications. The team also produces a quarterly newsletter and provides an enquiry service for education policy makers.
The team includes information, library and knowledge management experts with skills in information literacy, policy monitoring and literature reviews. From time to time, team members get involved with NFER's other work on international comparative education.
Youth Wiki Tool
The Eurydice at NFER team was also designated by the UK Government as the National Correspondent for England, Wales and Northern Ireland in a new European information tool. The EU Youth Wiki allows member states to provide comprehensive information about their respective youth policies on a shared web-based platform. The new tool provides overviews of national youth policies which will feed into the EU Youth Strategy.
