The Destine project is supported under the HORIZONTAL ERASMUS+ programme and has a duration of 24 months with starting date 01-11-2021.
The project is led by Osengo Europe in a consortium of 7 entities which are: CPIP (Romania), SYMPLEXIS (Greece), AKMI (Greece), Finnova (Spain), BK Consult (Germany) and FIP (Ireland).
DivErSity and Tolerance IN E-Environment (DESTINE) seeks to answer the challenge of raising the issues of diversity and tolerance within an online and distance learning environment and aims to build the skills and competences of VET teachers, trainers, mentors in this field. With recent technological changes, shifts in global economic power, accelerating urbanization, and demographic changes, emphasized recently by COVID 19 outbreak, the VET sector had to become even more responsive to the needs of the labour market and society. This fact has created an imperative need for VET providers, teachers, mentors, and trainers to not only adapt to these new realities, but also integrate the challenges of diversity and tolerance in Digital and Online learning programs.
The SETOFF project is funded under the ERASMUS + program, specifically under the action Cooperation Partnerships in the field of vocational training.
It has a duration of 36 months from 1 November 2021.
The SET-OFF consortium consists of 8 partners from 4 countries: Greece, Republic of North Macedonia, Belgium and Spain.
The SETOFF project aims to improve the redlines and job security of public and private civil protection personnel for future crises and emergencies by developing an innovative online training scheme based on a proven and successfully applied simulation model, combined with the latest scientific knowledge and a comprehensive needs analysis.
Civil Protection personnel face significant challenges due to the complexity and increased demands of incidents, while private sector security personnel face the same challenges related to the protection of interior assets. In these circumstances, both Civil Protection and private sector personnel must be able to assess critical issues under complex conditions and make quick and reasonable judgements based on sound scientific knowledge and previous experience to reduce the potential for errors to occur.
It is therefore important to provide broader and more diverse training and to seek new and improved ways of training target groups that optimize the actual performance of the task while keeping physical danger and economic cost to a minimum.
The SET-OFF consortium consists of 8 partners from 4 countries: universities and training organizations with expertise in civil protection issues, municipalities and non-profit research organizations, as well as technical consultancy service companies.
In addition, eleven Associated Partners recognize the need and potential of this project to enable structured knowledge exchange and facilitate collaboration between practitioners, civil society and stakeholders in the field of disaster management through the proposed online platform and express their interest in supporting and their intention to actively participate in SETOFF.
The Youth & EU project is funded under the Erasmus programme, more specifically a small-scale cooperation partnership project, the main objective of which is to bring the EU closer to young people through training, mobility, employability and participation opportunities. It has a duration of 15 months with a start date of 1 April 2022.
The consortium of this project is led by FINNOVA and is formed together with two other entities: European Union (Frankfurt) and Benaguasil City Council (Spain).
They work through the exchange of experiences and points of view, the aim will be to lay the groundwork to reverse the results that the September 2021 Youth Survey of the Eurobarometer uncovered regarding the lack of knowledge of young people about the EU. Together with participating organizations, experts, decision-makers, youth organizations and other stakeholders, young people will benefit from the positive exchange of experiences and best practices to promote the diffusion of the role of the EU in our lives.
Likewise, beyond the direct results of the project, YOUth and EU has other objectives aimed at young people such as their involvement in all spheres of the EU by providing them with employment, training and mobility opportunities, encouraging their participation in political life at local and European level, improving their channels of communication with the political sphere, creating international networks with other young people in the EU and promoting European democratic life, among others.
The LiVai project is funded under the ERASMUS + programme, specifically it is a project of Cooperation Partnerships in the field of adult education.
LiVai will be carried out over a period of 24 months starting on 07 January 2022. The consortium of this project is made up of 5 entities led by the UNIVERSITAT JAUME I DE CASTELLON.
The important challenge that LiVai project will address, focuses on how technology and data should be approached from an ethical perspective, within a certification framework that guarantees standards for all types of learning and work. The Commission has also presented a Digital Education Action Plan that aims to foster digital skills and competences for all citizens. This plan will explore the impact of AI on education and training through pilot tests. In this way, this project is presented as a pilot with the aim of improving the availability of high-quality learning opportunities for adults.
This project provides knowledge, skills, and a certification framework that will standardize the competences gained, which is a small but significant step towards improving quality assurance in adult education. Our project builds a digital platform that enables monitoring and evaluation (award certification scheme) of the three main groups adult educators, adult education institutions and adult learners. Finally, the complete framework provides practical guidance for the digital transformation of adult learning centers, a training framework for high quality digital learning pathways and a certification mechanism that will ensure high quality standards in the digital age.
