Will you help them to put climate and sustainability on skills and educational agendas in new ways? If yes then you can apply for 2021 RIS EduEx!
EIT Climate-KIC invites partners and new collaborators, e.g. civil society organisations, municipalities, research institutions and private actors, to join them in rethinking the future of learning, skills and education in Central, Eastern and Southern Europe to enable a just, resilient and prosperous transition to a net zero carbon economy that supports both planetary and human health. They want you to experiment with novel educational and learning methodologies to inspire the community and feed into the learning, education, and skills agenda of EIT Climate-KIC.
RIS EduEx 2021 aims to foster a community of cutting-edge learning practitioners from EIT RIS regions, and to bring fresh ideas on skills and learning into the EIT Climate-KIC community. They are looking for those who want to experiment with novel learning approaches that can support or enable the development of the skills, mindsets and imagination needed for resilient, just and inclusive futures and for tackling complex problems like climate change.
RIS will focus on developing new methodologies and approaches to education, learning and mindset shifts, for EIT Climate-KIC to expand the horizon on the skills, behaviours, ways of thinking and innovative learning methods needed for sustainable futures in an increasingly complex world.
EIT Climate-KIC will fund up to 5 experiments with up to 12 000 EUR each, for a period from the start of the contract in September until December 31, 2021.
Experiment Outputs, Deliverables and KPIs
- Outputs are substantial pieces of work done to achieve the experiment’s objectives.
- Deliverables are supporting documentary evidence that prove the work has taken place to the standard planned and should always be of high quality.
- KPIs are Key Performance Indicators and they are separated into two sets of KPIs – EIT Climate-KIC KPIs and EIT KPIs. For RIS EduEx 2021, KPI delivery is optional. However, for those proposals that are designed in such a way that they can contribute to the EIT KPI for ‘number of participants provided with (non-degree) education and training activities in EIT RIS countries’, EIT Climate-KIC will work with the successful applicant during the contracting stage to plan for the KPI to be captured. Generally, this will require the experimenter to maintain agendas, session descriptions and participant lists for any learning-related workshops or events – EIT may provide updated guidance on the exact requirements in Q4.
- This call for proposals is open for applications from both EIT Climate-KIC partner and non-partner organisations.
- EITClimate-KIC will not fund more than one experiment by the same organisation, research group or city.
