Following the outcomes of the AER Comittee’s plenaries in Timis (RO) and the high interest of member regions on the issues of social inclusion of migrants and integration of refugees, we would like to raise again your attention on a funding opportunity addressed to disadvantaged learners, which was already announced in a previous article and shared during the meeting in Timis.
Education, training and youth policies have a key role to play in fostering social inclusion, mutual understanding and respect among young people and communities. Therefore it is crucial to ensure equal access to high-quality education, in particular by reaching out to the most disadvantaged and integrating people with diverse backgrounds, including newly arrived migrants, into the learning environment, thereby fostering upwards social convergence.
This call for proposals will support projects in the fields of education, training and youth, which aim at upscaling and disseminating innovative good practices falling under the scope of the Paris Declaration.
The total budget available for the co-financing of projects within this call is EUR 13.000.000 and the EU contribution cannot exceed 90% of the total eligible project costs.
The deadline for the submission of project proposals is 30th May 2016 h 12:00 CET/CEST.
In order to support applicants and provide with background information, the EU Commission and EACEA organise an info day on this call on April 18th available also online via webstreaming.
If you would like to share your project idea, get support in consortium building and involve in your proposal a relevant network as AER, do not hesitate to get in touch with us!
