- Specific objectives: Proposals should address one of the following specific objectives:
- Enhancing the acquisition of social and civic competences, fostering knowledge, understanding and ownership of values and fundamental rights;
- Promoting inclusive education and training and fostering the education of disadvantaged learners, including through supporting educational staff in addressing diversity and reinforcing diversity among education staff;
- Enhancing critical thinking and media literacy among learners, parents and educational staff;
- Supporting the inclusion of newly arrived migrants in good quality education, including by assessing knowledge and validating prior learning;
- Fostering digital skills and competences of digitally excluded groups (including older people, migrants and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds) though partnerships between schools, business and the non-formal sector, including public libraries.
- The total budget available for the co-financing of projects under the present call is EUR 10.000.000.
- The maximum grant per project will be EUR 500.000.
- Eligible applicants are public and private organisations active in the fields of education, training and youth or other socio-economic sectors, or organisations carrying out cross-sector activities (e.g. cultural organisations, civil society, sport organisations, recognition centres, chambers of commerce, trade organisations, etc.).
- National Agencies or other structures and networks of the Erasmus+ Programme, receiving a direct grant from the Commission in accordance with the legal basis of the Programme are not eligible to participate. Nevertheless, the legal entities hosting the Erasmus+ National Agencies or the structures and networks mentioned above, as well as entities affiliated to these legal entities, are considered eligible applicants.
- Legal entities having a legal or capital link with a beneficiary, which is neither limited to the project nor established for the sole purpose of its implementation may take part in the project as affiliated entities, and may declare eligible costs. For that purpose, applicants shall identify such affiliated entities in the application form. These affiliated entities have to fulfil the eligibility and exclusion criteria and therefore the appropriate supporting documents will have to be provided.
- Only legal entities established in the following programme countries are eligible:
