GEMS - Graceful Equalising of Mechatronics Students

Imagen 1



The Objective of this project is to create an educational system for mechatronics students that gives the students an opportunity to learn using real mechatronic hardware. Many students have specific learning needs but want to learn and want to be included in the educational process like everyone else. That is why we propose that all students get their own educational hardware with online support (MOOCs) to be able to adjust practical mechatronics study to their needs.


Activities of this project will be mechatronic educational hardware development, creation of supporting mechatronics courses and tutorials in the form of MOOCs, development of platforms for the hardware re-use or sharing and project results promotion. Finally, 4 mechatronics summer schools for university students will be implemented to evaluate the developed hardware and MOOCs.

All work packages will have an activity sequence of specification definition, development, evaluation and modification.


Results of the project will be:

- Educational hardware in the form of smart servo motor will provide students with a device that equally represents all three study fields of mechatronics.

- Online mechatronic courses and tutorials in the form of MOOCs will support students’ learning with the hardware at university and at home.

The project results will be shown to be ready for ecologically responsible use in the university mechatronics education process to equalise the mechatronics students.

BEYOU : Boosting sustainability and social change through Youth led-community development



An economy that works for people | Europe's social pillar | Supporting small business | Youth employment


The project "BEYOU - Boosting sustainability and social change through Youth led-community development" targets local communities in Italy (Agrigento and Trapani), Greece (Athens), Spain (Alcalá de Henares), Cyprus (Nicosia) and Romania (Craiova) that are characterized by a high proportion of young people at risk of social exclusion and educational poverty. In line with the EU Youth Strategy 2019-2027, the European Green Deal and the EU Youth Goals, the project addresses the global needs of young people to be actively engaged in their local communities and to learn how to tackle by themselves the problems that most affect their lives and peers. Through an innovative socioeducational intervention addressed to young people, with particular focus on those in vulnerable situations (economic, social, cultural), the project includes the launch, testing and validation of a “Community Youth Incubator” programme, aiming at engaging actively both youth workers and young leaders into inclusive, green and sustainable development of their local communities. Disadvantaged young people will be engaged in grass root projects that address community issues that matter to them, take responsibility & contribute to the sustainable development & social innovation of the community in which they want to grow and live. Through the Community Youth Incubator programme, both youth workers and vulnerable and socio-economic disadvantaged youth will be engaged directly and gain their first experiences in leadership, community resources mobilization, project management, networking, providing also a meaningful voice to them in the framework of the Covid-19 recovery process in their local communities.

Reception And Integration Of Refugees And Migrants | Development Of Training Courses | Bridging Intercultural, Intergenerational And Social Divide | Inclusion and diversity in all fields of education, training, youth and sport | Improving the availability of high quality learning opportunities for adults | Promoting inter-connected higher education systems.


Public Services Interpreters and Translators (PSIT) hold a central role in addressing the communication needs of migrants when arriving in Europe. The context of their work is in constant change and calls for an up-to-date training with a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach that includes legislation, ethics, communication, cultural awareness and emotional reflexivity. They are expected to have specific knowledge, skills and competences to deal with the current challenges and needs that come up in their everyday work and proficient language skills in their working languages.

PSIT, which includes legal, administrative, educational and health contexts, help societies deal with the challenges posed by migration by bridging the communication gap between administrations and newcomers who do not speak the host language. Although there are differences in education and training in PSIT in the partner countries, generally speaking, training programmes for PSIT usually include European languages, however, migrants’ languages such as Arabic, Chinese and even less Bambara, Wolof, Pastun, to name but a few, are hardly ever found. Yet, migrants arrive to Europe from Asia, Africa, etc. and do not necessarily speak English or French (both consistently used by organizations and public service providers when speaking to them) as what they need is PSIT in their own languages. NGOs, associations and administrations working with PSIT in LLD (Languages of Lesser Diffusion) normally turn to ad hoc PSIT who are members of the migrant community or who know their language but who are not trained to carry out this professional activity.

There are not many ways to achieve funding for social projects concerning migrants, especially connecting three Mediterranean countries which have similar migrant reception problems such as the lack of trained PSIT in LLD. This, however, is one of the main problems we face not only when there are migrant crises (which, unfortunately, are occurring with a higher frequency and intensity) but on a daily basis. Italy, Greece and Spain are in a constant migratory crisis and need to improve their first line of action: communication with incoming refugees and other citizens who do not speak their language.NGOs, associations and administrations working with PSIT in LLD normally turn to ad hoc PSIT who are members of the migrant community or who know their language but who are not trained to carry out this professional activity.

These ad hoc interpreters and translators are not trained in any way and there is an urgent and increasing demand for training not in their specific working languages but in intercultural communication, mediation, translation and interpreting.

Thus education and training are fundamental tools which, when applied to those who will later cater for bridging intercultural and inter linguistic gaps, could be a solution for communicating effectively in multilingual societies.

ACES - Accounting for Circular Economy and Sustainability - Innovative training solutions in higher education facilitating accounting for the circular economy



Environment and fight against climate change| Stimulating innovative learning and teaching practices.


Circular Economy (CE) regulation is pushing the appearance of circular business models. However, hardly any Higher Education Institutions (HEI) have included circular accounting training in their curriculum. Completion of the ACES project will enhance the knowledge and skills of business students, teachers, and practitioners about the current and future CE accounting practices and methods by developing teaching materials and innovative digital learning solutions in HEIs across the EU.

The ACES project activities start with a literature review on circular economy (CE) accounting and business interviews on measuring and valuing CE. Based on this research, modular teaching materials with innovative pedagogical elements are developed to fill the gap on circular accounting in current HEI curricula. These modules are piloted and validated for relevance and pedagogical suitability. Active dissemination will ensure wide-reaching use of the results among both HEIs and companies.

The ACES project brings together the latest knowledge and best business practices on financial and managerial accounting for Circular Economy (CE) in the context of the EU’s evolving regulatory landscape. The results include three learning modules and an innovative pedagogical teaching guide. The resulting framework of CE accounting is disseminated among business educators and company representatives, increasing understanding about the critical role of accounting to support the transition to CE.

COOP-GAME-EU - New methods and tools for EU Teaching and Learning at School


EU integration| New skills and competences for teachers | School education | – digital skills | VET teachers,


The progressive loss of effectiveness of traditional teaching methods in Spain is leading into an alarming level of educational failure. In this context, objective information about the major achievements and challenges of the European integration process is scarce in secondary schools. This situation leads to a detachment from the European Union (EU) affecting the youth and some sectors of civil society, which ultimately translates into disenchantment and scepticism among citizens about the EU and its policies.

The project aims at correcting this ongoing trend by designing and applying new teaching strategies and tools based on cooperative learning, gamification/serious games and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).

The aim is to promote a better understanding, both in secondary education and vocational training, of the functioning of the EU and its institutions, addressing in a multicultural environment current concerns such as misinformation and fake-news.

The new teaching strategies and tools will be offered to those teachers and trainers interested in the academic and professional development of their students who have expressed the need to expand their skills on the EU.

In particular, three specific activities are planned:

1) Courses on the EU for teachers of secondary education and vocational training (PF) based on said methods and tools;

2) Workshops on the EU for secondary school students and PF pupils in which these methods and tools will be put into practice; and

3) Preparation of materials on the EU based on gamification, serious games and ICT.

In summary, the project aims to improve the study and knowledge of the EU using new resources and tools adapted to new learning methods and exportable throughout the EU. This will ultimately improve the academic curricula in the schools participating in the project.

EU-PRILAW - European International Private Law in Action


Law | EU integration | Promoting our European way of life | Upholding the rule of law | Judicial cooperation | European Private international Law.


The objective of the Module is to provide basic tools that help understand and analyse the different aspects contained in European Private International Law. The Jean Monnet Module “European International Private Law in Action“ (EUPRILAW)

aims to offer a course on "European Private International Law", which will be taught progressively over the next three academic years (60 hours each) of Prof. Ana Fernández Pérez (2022/23, 2023/24 and 2024/25) and in which an innovative methodology will be used. In addition to the academic year itself, the Jean Monnet Module will organize three conferences (lectures and debates) with political leaders, researchers, members of civil society and schools, prepare and launch educational resources, publish (working papers, articles, books) and disseminate information. to the general public (press articles, blogs, radio and/or television interviews, etc.). The course will be taught by Postdoctoral and senior researchers from the Module team, as well as by international experts, who will also organize the different events.

During the scholarship period, the Module team will publish peer-reviewed articles and a collective book, participate in dissemination and information events in our country and throughout Europe, apply open educational resources and publish the summaries, contents, schedule and results of activities on different websites and blogs.

The Module will be based at the Faculty of Law of the UAH, where the Degree in Law is taught. In addition, the proposed Module aims to extend European studies to students from other degrees: Arts and Humanities, Health Sciences, Engineering and Architecture and Social Sciences, where there is currently no academic offer in such studies. In this way, the Module will promote greater knowledge about European studies and about the subject, in which Prof. Ana Fernández Pérez has a high qualification and experience.

GreenCo - GREEN Computing App and Mooc for awareness-raising on digital pollution.



Environment and fight against climate change | Addressing digital transformation through development of digital readiness, resilience and capacity | Inclusion and diversity in all fields of education, training, youth and sport.


Specifically, the project seeks to achieve the following three fundamental objectives:

- Awareness-raising of digital pollution: In contrast to physical and visible pollution, on which much remains to be done but where we are making progress at an increasing pace, digital pollution is virtually invisible. It is not visible to the naked eye and, moreover, there are very few news items about it. One of the aims of the project is to raise awareness of the environmental impact of excessive data consumption and propose simple and accessible measures to reduce it.

 - Self-assess knowledge about digital pollution: Closely related to the previous objective, once one is aware of the existence and impact of digital pollution, the following question can be raided: how much am I contributing right now? How badly am I doing? The project, essentially through the App, will provide a gamified self-assessment experience to encourage the participation of the younger audience.

- Online training of users for responsible use of technology: the next step up the ladder would be, after raising awareness of the problem and assessing it, the proposal of measures aimed at tackling it. To this purpose, the GreenCo project will develop a MOOC on digital pollution that provides young people with training in sustainable practices that can be incorporated into their daily habits.

The main expected result is an application which helps to increase the awareness on digital pollution in users between 15 to 29 years old. In that framework, the project will produce the following project results:

- An E-Book as an information compilation on green computing developed in four topics: Energy consumption, e-waste recycling, initiatives and legislation.

- A Mockup which contains the definition of app features based on background and objectives, and establish gamification processes.

- Green Computing App development. Its aim is a self-assessment of awareness on digital pollution, inform and give knowledge on it, and promote efficient energy consumption and e-waste recycling.

– Multilingual training Mooc, an online training on how to reduce digital pollution, for final users of the app – students from 15 to 29 years old, but also open to general public. In addition, communication activities adapted to the project's target audience are foreseen, such as the development of a website, social media campaigns, press impacts, multiplier events, etc.

Finally, project management activities are also foreseen, with the aim of complying with the programme rules and ensuring adequate internal communication.

VELA - VET Empowerment through innovative and inclusive Learning Approaches



Addressing digital transformation through development of digital readiness, resilience and capacity | Contributing to innovation in vocational education and training | Increasing attractiveness of VET.


The shock of the COVID-19 crisis on education has been unprecedented. It has set the clock back on the attainment of international education goals, and disproportionately affected the most vulnerable. According with “UN - Policy Brief: Education during Covid-19 and beyond” more than 1.5 learners across the planet are or have been affected by lack of educational meaning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, vocational education and training (VET) systems are being uniquely impacted and it has received limited attention compared to other parts of the education system and is often seen as having lower status. While for mainstream schools, governments have adopted protocols to allow students to return to school, in the field of VET there is a dangerous carelessness. There is an enormous variety of tools available to teachers and trainers to create their own learning material and environments, but the vast majority of them are not VET-specific. Ready-made material with VET-specific content is much less developed. In most cases, the tools provided by public or private stakeholders focus exclusively on theoretical knowledge. There is a risk that VET learners are disadvantaged compared with learners from other educational tracks, as more efforts are put into general school subjects. This extraordinary situation is an opportunity for VET providers and learners alike to develop their digital competence.

JOULE - Data JOUrnaLism courses for higher Education



Addressing digital transformation through development of digital readiness, resilience, and capacity | Contributing to innovation in vocational education and training | Increasing attractiveness of VET.


Data journalism represents a rapidly growing experience in higher educational courses in the European countries and media are beginning to appreciate the use of data, in a systematic and scientific way, in the production of journalistic content. While telling stories with data has been part of the news practice since its earliest days, it is in the midst of a renaissance due to the data availability. Graphics desks, which used to be deemed as “the art department,” a subfield outside the work of newsrooms, are becoming a core part of newsrooms’ operation. Those people (they often have various titles: data journalists, news artists, graphic reporters, developers, etc.) who design news graphics are expected to be full-fledged journalists and work closely with reporters and editors. Indeed, data accessibility, analysis, visualization and reporting is an important skill to overcome the digital divide and to guarantee a well designed news spreading and to ensure modern democracy. The lack of data culture is clearly visible in these days of the coronavirus epidemic. The data provided in the news are often not the same in different newspapers. It is not clear which categories of people journalists are considering as coronavirus death, the epidemy flows are not clearly shown, lot of data are not clearly given (e.g., the percentage of people going in intensive care, the distribution of death per age). The result is that people are not sure of what is happening and trust in news diminishes. The most decisive factor in the emergence of data Journalism is undoubtedly the availability of an incredible amount of material to be searched, selected, processed, analysed, compared and finally published in a journalistic form. This process requires special tools and programs, as well as the technical mathematical skills to use them, and a new approach to the understanding of news and to their narrative. Data journalism attempts to combine a technical approach to data based on finding “answers to questions" and the search of patterns and anomalies with the journalistic approach to research "interesting questions". The main purpose of data journalism is to combine mathematical techniques and computational resources with experience and journalistic flair to obtain original investigative journalism. Data Journalism represents for journalists the ability to tell otherwise untold stories and to increase confidence in published news; indeed, nowadays the most important news media have their own data newsroom. The use of data analysis and data visualization for communication is not limited to journalism in the strict sense, but it concerns the communication in general of both enterprises and institutions promoting transparency and accountability in their relationship with citizens. At European level, the training of data journalists is not uniformly widespread and formalized, rather it is entrusted either to generic data science and data visualization courses, or to generic journalism courses, with digital communication content, while only few HEs provide courses in data journalism. JOULE attempts to meet four specific NEEDS: -The training gap: between the training of traditional journalists and the skills needed in the digital context. -The academic gap: a lot of degree courses in data science, none in data journalism; - The standardization gap: there is no well-defined academic curriculum on data journalism especially in the south of Europe. -The illiteracy gap: citizens don't have a clue about how data can misinform them: There is no citizen's awareness training about algorithmic manipulation.

DECEL - Digital Electronics Collaborative Enhanced Learning


Addressing digital transformation through development of digital readiness, resilience, and capacity | Developing STEM/STEAM in higher education, in particular women participation in STEM | Stimulating innovative learning and teaching practices


DECEL project bursts as an initiative of a group of teachers from the Engineering disciplines, at a time when the European Commission has presented two major initiatives aimed at unlocking Europe´s potential on education and innovation: the Communication on the European Education Area, and the introduction of the updated Digital Education Action Plan, whose purpose is to support the use of technology in education and the development of digital competences. Paradoxically enough, although engineering courses probably use the most sophisticated software tools to program, design or simulate, teaching processes in this field are still based upon traditional learning methodologies, with limited or no bilateral interaction promoted in most of them, and where the role of the teacher remains that of a mere lecturer in front of a passive cohort of students. In other words, while this increasing technological sophistication is being used in our classrooms to calculate things the teaching activity has proved to be hermetic to the use of this young and fresh tools to dynamize the learning process. Moreover, and equally disturbing, despite the global expanding tendency of this sort of studies, and the common use of the English language as a learning vehicle, the Erasmus+ Impact Study (2019) clearly evinces a deficit in the participation of Engineering students in international mobility programmes. This might be the result, among other circumstances, of the high level of experimentally into the Engineering fields all the technical courses, which are the most important part in the syllabus, and the handicap that may pose access to expensive lab equipment at any time and from anyplace. Against this situation, our project seeks a crucial movement from a reactive to a pro-active strategic approach in the design of Digital Electronic Systems courses; a movement that shall depart from the added value of using technology in our curricula to mainstreaming a digitally enhanced learning and teaching; a movement, to say the least, that shall stop having a traditional focus on internationalization based on mobility as part of our home degrees, to understand that we should explore internationalization of the curriculum and the teaching and learning process as the beacon for innovation in this studies. From the university level, new Erasmus+ Calls such as Alliance of European Universities are promoting the construction of joined schemes between several universities. These ones are usually constructed under a high-level perspective using a bottom-up approach. However, the teachers involved in regular activities as teaching have not had the chance to promote some type of European collaboration. Joining the need of promoting internationalization in our students, apply new pedagogical tools in curricular courses, extending European teaching cooperation and take advantage of new software/hardware resources, DECEL project is proposed.

e-CLOSE - A model for Interactive (A)Synchronous Learning in Online STEM Education


Open and distance learning | New innovative curricula/educational methods/development of training courses | ICT | new technologies | digital competences


The COVID-19 outbreak has had a significant impact on higher education all over the world. Universities had to rapidly transform their study programmes to be delivered online to keep student retention and maintain access to learning. The adjustment however comes with significant challenges not only in relation to the technical aspects of handling several hundred online lectures simultaneously but also to the methodology of the teaching process and the teacher-student interaction. The technological development and wide availability of basic ICT tools make the shift to online education relatively easy. The real challenge of today however is to consciously choose available collaboration tools and engagement methods to arouse student interest and provoke a response for a more efficient and effective communication and learning experience while away from a traditional classroom. To face that challenge, the universities involved in the project – Lodz University of technology (Poland), University of Applied Sciences in Saarbrücken (Germany), University of Alcalá (Spain) and University of Aveiro (Portugal) – decided to join forces for the development, implementation and dissemination of innovative and comprehensive teaching and learning solutions, supported by advanced IT technologies and tools, to increase the level of student-teacher interaction during online education:

  1. Methodology of Interactive Asynchronous and Synchronous Online STEM Education
  2. Distance Teaching Toolbox for Educators
  3. Teacher Training Courses
  4. Smart Gamification Based On Multiple Intelligence Theory
  5. Online Badges For Sustainable Education (21st Century Skills )
  6. Guidelines and Recommendations

To further benefit the project participants, the consortium will offer a series of training opportunities for academic teachers tailored to their individual needs to increase their competences for effective online teaching arousing student interest and responsiveness. The students will get a chance to meet in several of the partner countries to conduct a gamification learning experience in the blended formula and to develop the 21st century skills sought by the labour market.

The project is directed towards students and academics of the consortium universities and beyond ready to bring the ICT technology to the forefront when facing the challenges of online education.

COMET2 – A Community of Ethics Teachers in Europe 2


Educación en Valores | Enseñanza Filosófica y Moral | Debates y Dilemas Morales | Estudio Comparativo de Pedagogía Ética | Metaética | Sistemas y Legislaciones Educativas Europeas Comparadas


Ethics education plays an integral role in the fostering of European values. However, Ethics is studied in European secondary schools within a wide variety of curricula, ranging from Philosophy (such as in The Netherlands and Slovenia) and Civics (such as in Slovakia), to Ethics as an independent curriculum (such as in Germany). This fragmentation of curricula, along with a fragmentation of pedagogical methods and goals, inhibits the opportunities for exchanges of best practices and mutual learning. The Community of Ethics Teachers in Europe aims at overcoming these curricular differences through (digital) innovation, in order to promote the acquisition of skills and competences of European ethics teachers.
The Erasmus+ project from 2017 with the title 'A Community of Ethics Teachers in Europe' (COMET; 2017-1-NL01-KA201-035219) established a network of ethics teachers by means of an online platform. With the current project, 'A Community of Ethics Teachers in Europe 2' (COMET 2), we are expanding the online platform with the Ethics curricula of five new partner countries: Bulgaria, Greece, Luxembourg, Norway and Spain.

Coinciding with the development of the online platform, the research of the 2017 COMET project aimed at mapping and categorising the Ethics curricula of the participating countries. One of the remarkable findings of the COMET project was that none of the participating countries employed a comprehensive methodology towards oracy in the ethics classroom: even though classroom discussions on ethical topics were common, a more systematic approach to debating moral dilemmas remained absent. This is noteworthy, as many studies have shown the positive impact of debate on the development of skills that are at the core of every ethics curriculum, such as critical thinking, empathy and respect for different viewpoints.

In order to respond to this lacuna in European Ethics Education, the COMET 2 project will aim at the development of a teacher's guide with the provisional title: 'Teaching Ethics through Debate'. The teacher's guide will consist of a systematic approach to debating moral dilemmas, supplemented with a collection of moral dilemmas that can be used as a starting point for classroom debates.

Trust AI - Trustworthy AI

Inteligencia artificial | Educación superior | Enseñanza y aprendizaje de la AI en otras áreas.

La inteligencia artificial (IA) es un área de importancia estratégica para el desarrollo tanto social como económico de la Unión Europea y un elemento clave de la Agenda Digital para Europa. No obstante, al mismo tiempo que los sistemas basados en IA ofrecen oportunidades inmensas, crean riesgos que pueden comprometer nuestros principios democráticos o éticos en áreas como la voluntad humana, la inclusión (o su inversa, la discriminación), privacidad y transparencia, entre otros.

La educación superior debe jugar un papel importante contribuyendo a una IA innovadora, segura y ética. Está en nuestras manos no tan solo preparar en este aspecto a los jóvenes con habilidades avanzadas de programación, sino también al resto de estudiantes para que entiendan las implicaciones de la IA y asegurar que se usa en beneficio de la humanidad.

El objetivo principal de Trust AI, por lo tanto, es ayudar a las universidades y demás IES para mejorar radicalmente su enseñanza en el ámbito de la IA para enfatizar los componentes que se basan en valores y ética, y alcanzar a estudiantes de todas las disciplinas, especialmente aquellas relacionadas con los negocios, las políticas públicas y las ciencias sociales, que también juegan un papel importante en la expansión de la IA en la sociedad.

Foreseen outcomes:

  • Conseguiremos esto introduciendo tres recursos que serán usados en las IES para introducir nuevos aprendizajes en este campo.
    • El MARCO DE APRENDIZAJE para la enseñanza de la Inteligencia Artificial en la Educación Superior, que definirá las competencias y habilidades relacionadas con una IA confiable y segura, y las estrategias de aprendizaje a seguir para desarrollar dichas competencias en los estudiantes.
    • Los RECURSOS EDUCATIVOS ABIERTOS para la Inteligencia Artificial Confiable (Trustworthy AI), que empoderarán a los profesores para poder incluir este tema en su docencia. Los REA incluirán una guía para el profesor, actividades sugeridas y material multimedia que podrá ser usado directamente con los estudiantes como actividades interactivas.
    • La GUÍA PARA LA REALIZACIÓN DE HACKATONES de Inteligencia Artificial Ética que guiará a los docentes en cómo usar esta innovadora metodología para ayudar a consolidar las habilidades de los estudiantes basándose en casos de negocio y problemas sociales de la vida real.

Durante el proyecto, al menos 40 líderes de la educación superior, 80 docentes y 200 estudiantes se involucrarán en el desarrollo, las pruebas y la implementación del proyecto. Como resultado de nuestro trabajo:

  • Docentes de diversas disciplinas serán capaces de incorporar habilidades avanzadas en lo digital y lo cívico-social en sus respectivas asignaturas o cursos, centrándose en el pensamiento crítico y los aspectos relacionados con la resolución de problemas.

  • Los estudiantes obtendrán habilidades más adecuadas para el mercado laboral y contribuirán a un desarrollo social sostenible. Entenderán cómo poder aprovechar la IA sin comprometer los valores o la confianza que son fundamentales en el desarrollo y la democracia.

EcoHeritage - Ecomuseums as a collaborative approach to recognition, management and protection of cultural and natural heritage.

Social education, civic participation, ecomuseums, community museums, adult education, heritage.

Recent demographic decline affects unevenly different population settlements across Europe: rural areas face high rates of depopulation, while urban areas experience higher population concentrations. Spain leads rural depopulation in Europe, with only a 25.7% of its population living in rural areas (Eurostat: 2017). The high rate of depopulation in rural areas also poses an important social challenge due to the related high risk of exclusion and poverty.

  • In 2015, 25.5% of the rural population was at risk of poverty or social exclusion, while in cities it was 24%. The risk of social exclusion in rural areas affect the 27.1% of the population, while in the cities, the 24.3% (Eurostat: 2017).
  • People living in rural areas tend to drop out of education and training earlier. In fact, according to Eurostat, the rate of young people aged 18-24 living in rural areas of the EU who neither study nor work is 3.7 points higher than people living in cities of the same age group.
  • Given the cultural and natural richness of rural areas, heritage can definitely represent an alternative source of development for these territories. Ecomuseums work as shared processes of recognition, management and protection of cultural and natural heritage, aimed at promoting sustainable development. Ecomuseums are organised by its communities in an associated and cooperative way based on four main areas: economic, social, environmental and scientific-technological. Ecomuseums are able to generate incomes from culture, knowledge and services. EcoHeritage primary target group are rural communities, especially adult population, as well as ecomuseums in Europe.

The secondary target group addressed are municipalities and local governments, cultural institutions, heritage research institutions and adult education providers.

  • Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices.             
  • Strategic Partnerships for adult education Form.

Foreseen outcomes:

  • The specific objectives of our project are:
  • To raise awareness about ecomuseums as a collaborative heritage management model, establishing a set of criteria for its recognition and a common methodology to improve its contribution to social, economic, environmental and heritage sustainability of rural area.
  • To provide skills to adult learners in rural areas through the creation of innovative training materials on active citizenship promotion and participatory heritage management.
  • To generate steady communication networks between ecomuseums at national and European level thus fostering knowledge and good practices exchange that will contribute to the sustainability of consolidated and new coming ecomuseums.- To foster the creation of ecomuseums as an endogenous resource for competitiveness and social, economic and environmental sustainability of rural areas.

BEGIN - Blockhain Enabling Growth in New Enterprises.

Blockchain training |entrepreneurship education | digital skills | SME/start-up business models

SMEs are the backbone of our economies: they make up 99% of businesses in the UK, Ireland and across Europe and create 85% of new jobs. Yet the business environment is changing rapidly, not least due to developments in digital technology. If the EU is to meet its “Start-up and scale-up” initiative to help more businesses grow faster, more work must be done to teach business managers and entrepreneurs they skills they need to adapt to the digital global economy.BEGIN will respond by creating and mainstreaming a new blockchain training model that enables entrepreneurship education providers to teach blockchain technology to their SME and entrepreneur learners. We start from the assumption that blockchain technologies and the infrastructure surrounding it has matured sufficiently so that the digital skills and investment required to integrate blockchain technologies into SME/start-up business models are now accessible. However, new training must not be solely technical: it must address the attitudinal, knowledge and skills barriers that SMEs – and the wider entrepreneurship VET sector – faces.

Foreseen outcomes:

  • Entrepreneurship educators working in business centres, colleges, incubators and accelerators will increase their own knowledge regarding blockchain and Digital Ledger Technologies, and develop their own skills for teaching it. This includes an improved mastery of a new approach to vocational skills development -problem-based learning Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices.
  • Abilities to teach EntreComp and DigComp related competences.
  • Managers of SMEs and start up entrepreneurs will develop the entrepreneurial and digital skills to identify, evaluate and integrate blockchain technologies to boost their business growth. These skills will enable them to participate more fully in the digital economy and contribute to business growth.
  • Managers and leaders of organisations that provide entrepreneurship VET, including enterprise development agencies, business centres, and colleges, will benefit from an improved awareness regarding the importance of blockchain skills as relevant and valuable to entrepreneurship curricula. Furthermore, thanks to the availability of resources and the online course, they will be able to accelerate the introduction of blockchain training and increase the quality of this training by blending digital and traditional teaching strategies.

Developing FL literacy in CLIL context (LIT4CLIL)

Literacy | CLIL | EFL | Primary Education

The project Developing FL literacy in CLIL context (LIT4CLIL) aims at developing and testing CLIL approach for primary EFL (years 3 to 5). The approach to be developed is based on the assumption that students need to develop their literacy skills in the foreign language (in this case, English) as much as in the mother tongue if they are to study content subjects through this foreign language.

The project designs and pilots a training course in literacy-based EFL teaching in which 10 teachers coming from the partner schools in each country will take part, who will then put the approach to language teaching itself to the test by designing, implementing and evaluating 10 units of work for EFL in grades 3 to 5 in transnational teams. Once the training course and the implementation of the literacy units have been evaluated, they will be transformed into a MOOC, thus making the training in literacy-based foreign language teaching available to teachers worldwide. The final stage of the project is designing a transnational FL literacy module that will be taught at partner universities as part of the Master’s programme.

The project aims to develop a teaching approach to English that has the potential of changing foreign language teaching as such, and of contributing to the development of a strong, cross-curricular approach to literacy development in schools. This, in turn, has the potential to place literacy development right at the centre of primary education curricula, which ultimately “is likely to significantly remove barriers to further education and training, and reduce social inequalities”. (EU High Level Literacy Group of Experts on Literacy 2012, p. 26)

Foreseen Outcomes:

  • Needs analysis questionnaire about literacy teaching
  • Report on dominant EFL teaching approach in CLIL, conceptualization of literacy and prior training
  • Planning grid for literacy-based teaching units
  • Pilot online course on literacy-based foreign language teaching
  • Literacy-based teaching units
  • Evaluation tool for pilot on-line course on literacy-based language teaching
  • Repository of collected materials for literacy teaching
  • Transnational modules for the Master’s programmes
  • MOOC on literacy teaching
