According to the 2013 Education and Training Monitor recently launched by the European Commission, sixteen Member States decreased their spending on education between 2008 and 2011, with six showing further significant budget decreases in 2012. The Education and Training Monitor is an annual publication examining the evolution of Europe’s education and training systems, allowing Member States to compare themselves against others. Most of the analysis presented in the Monitor is based on reports produced by the JRC.

An EU-27 survey of intermediary organisations operating on the education, social and employment sectors and providing IT training has produced a first ever assessment of the e-Inclusion intermediary sector. It accounts for a total of 250,000 organisations, or one e-Inclusion actor per every 2,000 inhabitants. One in two employs 10 staff or less and operates on a budget smaller than €100,000. Half of the e-Inclusion actors go further and offer employment–related training. And for two out of three, local government funding is the main financial resource.
