Apply now for funding to attend the Erasmus+ Transnational Cooperation Activities' (TCA) event about Centres of lifelong education established within universities and the support they provide for lifelong learning and social inclusion. The deadline for applications is Monday, 1 July 2019.
Date of the event: 18-20 September 2019
Location: Czech Republic
Themes and goals:
There is an continuing increase of elderly people and other adults all over Europe willing to learn and gain new ideas. This requires innovative pedagogical concepts and approaches that address adults’ lifelong learning needs.
Erasmus+ Mobility projects and Strategic partnerships offer the opportunity to share, develop or transfer innovative practice to respond to these needs. This activity is also in line with the new European initiative Upskilling Pathways: New Opportunities for Adults.
This contact seminar aims to bring together participants with similar project ideas on this topic in order to develop KA2 project proposals and to gain new contacts for the KA1 mobility projects. The National Agency will provide a forum for an exchange of ideas via EPALE (Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe) prior to the contact seminar.
The aim of the activity is to share good practice, networking, project management and inspiration. Participants will find motivated partners with similar project ideas and will jointly draft good quality KA1 or KA2 project proposals for the next Erasmus+ selection round.
