The early days
The evolution of the Eurodesk logo
In 2004, Eurodesk network was designated as one of the support structures under the EU's Youth programme. This decision altered the mechanism for the European Commission's funding of the Eurodesk network and offered a greater stability to the funding process for national partners and for Eurodesk Brussels Link.
2004 marked the launch of the European Youth Portal by the European Commission. Eurodesk took an active part in the development of the Portal and ever since the organisation manages its content and answers enquiries received via the site. The upcoming years brought many new initiatives (the SYTYKIA, the HYHO, the Right2Move and the Time to Move campaign or the Eurodesk Awards), as Eurodesk was seeking to extend its outreach and inform young people who do not usually know about European opportunities .
In 2007, the legal basis for the Commission's Youth in Action programme (2007-2013) identified Eurodesk as one of the permanent support structures for the Programme.
In 2013, the cooperation with the European Commission is renewed within the legal basis for the Commission's Erasmus+ programme (2014-2020) which identifies Eurodesk as a support structure for the Programme.
The development is continuous ever since. Currently, there are 36 countries with national Eurodesk partners supporting over 1100 regional and local Eurodesk relays.
