Erasmus+ is the EU Programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2020. The Programme supports actions, cooperation and tools consistent with the objectives of the Europe 2020 Strategy. This investment in knowledge, skills and competences will benefit individuals, institutions, organisations and society as a whole by contributing to growth and ensuring prosperity and social inclusion in Europe and beyond.

The actions under KA2 - cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices - make it possible for organisations from different participating countries to work together, to develop, share and transfer best practices and innovative approaches in the fields of education, training and youth. Projects from this line of action should bring about innovations in the field of education. They are oriented towards the medium to longer term and aim at sustainable effects in the participating organizations.

The present project concerns the following European objectives, taken from "ERASMUS + in detail", the official brochure of the European Commission:

  • Growing requirement for high skilled jobs
  • A global competition for talent: internationalisation of education
  • Extraordinary broadening of learning offer and potential of ICT
  • Complementarity between formal, informal and non formal learning
  • Need for closer links with world of work
