As a general rule, the eligibility conditions for this call are the same as those for Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic Partnerships, which have already been published in this year’s 2020 Programme Guide. Strategic Partnerships are one of the project formats of Erasmus+. They make it possible for institutions of school education, vocational training, tertiary education, adult education and extracurricular youth work to cooperate with partners from Europe. These partnerships lead to innovative approaches in education, and the exchange of knowledge and experience in international networks also benefits the Swiss educational landscape.
For applications with associated status, cooperation projects in the fields of digital education and partnerships for creativity can be submitted to Movetia between now and 12 November 2020. The maximum duration of the projects is 24 months.
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the trend towards modernisation and transformation of the education and training systems and highlighted the necessity of establishing and expanding digital communication formats. The goal of Digital Education Readiness is to strengthen the educational and training institutions and offer high-quality, integrative digital education.
Via this call for funding, institutions in the areas of school education, vocational education and training, and higher education can submit applications for projects that will get the education system into shape for online and distance learning. They will do so by creating new instruments for developing digital skills and safeguarding the inclusive nature of learning opportunities for teachers and trainers.
The partnerships will promote networking within the European educational landscape, the joint use of resources and specialist knowledge and collaboration with providers of digital technologies and educational technology experts in order to develop tailored solutions for local challenges and circumstances.
The COVID-19 crisis has hit the cultural and creative sectors particularly hard. Partnerships for Creativity aim to engage institutions and organisations in the fields of formal, informal and non-formal education in the creative and cultural sectors in such a way that young people and adults can gain the necessary skills to overcome the current social challenges.
Via this call for funding institutions and organisations from the fields of school education, adult education and youth work can apply for support with projects that enhance the creative potential of young people and adults, promote cross-sectoral cooperation and boost quality, innovation and recognition in school education, adult education and youth work.
