Extraordinary Erasmus+ calls to support digital education readiness and creative skills
02 September 2020
To help mitigate the digital challenges raised by Covid-19, the European Commission launched two extraordinary Erasmus+ calls to support digital education readiness and creative skills. The applications deadline is 29 October 2020.
Both calls will help link education, training and youth organisations with those in the cultural and creative sectors:
- The call for digital education readiness will support projects in school education, vocational education and training, and higher education. This call will aim to enhance online, distance and blended learning - including supporting teachers and trainers, as well as safeguarding the inclusive nature of digital learning opportunities.
- The call for ‘partnerships for creativity’ will support projects in the fields of youth, school education and adult education. The call aims to develop skills and competences that encourage creativity and boost quality, innovation and recognition of youth work.
Each call provides €100 million to respond to the educational challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Interested organisations should contact the Erasmus+ National Agency in their country.
