    European Community funding programmes in the field of education and training present supranational policy instruments bringing change to various levels of social reality at the national level. In attempt to present the holistic view of their impact, the results of the Lifelong Learning Programme impact evaluation are presented that applied a mixed method research approach combining a focus group discussion method, interviews, content analysis and survey research. Results show that EC education and training funding programmes do bring change to national (system), mezzo (organisational) and micro (individual) level. Yet the impact seems to be different at observed levels as well as in the different target domains, being weakest at the system level. This opens the question of how much (economic) sense does it make to exploit EC programmes as a mechanisms of national policy goals implementation.
