This pilot project was not extended. The Commission expenditure on LinkedIn Learning during the years in question was EUR 80 065 in 2019 and EUR 62 200 in 2020.

On 18 September 2020, the Commission adopted the EU Anti-Racism Action Plan 2020-2025, which sets out its plan to step up action against racism and achieve a Union of Equality. The Action Plan repeats the Commission’s unequivocal condemnation of any discrimination on the grounds of racial or ethnic origin.
