The Open Project Fund of the International Pilot Programme 2018-2020 was used to test first cooperation and mobility experiences with new partners in countries outside Europe and to further develop existing partnerships. The type of cooperation and the form of mobility were not predetermined.
The projects should make a contribution to the further development of the Swiss education system and youth work and strengthen the international networking of Swiss educational institutions from primary schools to higher education institutions.
New funding models should also be tested and the added value of exchanges, mobility and partnership activities outside Europe for Swiss participants should be gauged. The insights will be deployed in the further development of the long-term funding policy of the federal government.
The project promoters are essentially free to design their project.
The innovative nature of the projects is important: How do we develop mobility and partnerships, and how do we implement these? How do we further build upon a proven partnership? What new elements are there in education (new teaching and learning methods), and how do we combine education and economic activity? Are there new forms of training modules and other types of mobility («virtual mobility»)? How does digitalisation change mobility and partnership? How can the transition from education to professional life be improved (key word: «employability»)?
All public and private Swiss institutions and organisations in the field of education and youth work.
The results and products of the projects funded by us are to be shared as widely as possible and made available to other key players in the education system – you drafted a dissemination strategy for this along with your application. Publications and reports connected with the project are required to mention that they received funding from Movetia. Movetia requests this so as to ensure the visibility of exchange and mobility as well as the funding programmes. Movetia is pleased to share your information with others (via website, social media).
The Movetia logo, text modules and our social media information can be found on the “Reporting on projects” page.
