Erasmus+ at Fair Didacta, preview of new developments
Erasmus+, with its seminars and workshops, was one of the protagonists of Fair Didacta Italy. On 29 September, the last day of the event, “Erasmus+ is innovation” presented the many opportunities offered to schools (see the photo gallery of the event).
Since 2014, the year of the launch of Erasmus+, the European commission and the national agencies have been carrying out a process of adaptation of the programme in order to make it more accessible for schools.
On the occasion of the “Erasmus+ is innovation” event at Fair Didacta, two main new developments of the programme were presented: increased budget for schools and partnerships between schools for students and staff mobility.
Increased budget for schools, that is more chances to have a project financed:
+ 30% for KA1 actions of mobility for teachers and staff; + 40% for KA2 strategic partnerships for schools.
School-to-school partnerships reformulation
Starting from the new call, the two existing partnerships – partnership for innovation and partnership for the exchange of good practices – will be added a new one: schools will have the possibility to apply for school-to-school partnerships for students and staff mobility. The partnership will include a minimum of 2 schools and a maximum of 6. The main focus will be on mobility, application and management procedures will be simplified by a tailor-made agreement and every school will manage its own budget.
