The EACEA published materials and info day for Virtual Exchanges in Higher Education and Youth.
Until 20 September 2022, it is possible to submit applications for Virtual Exchanges in higher education and youth. What are the aims and objectives of these projects?
Virtual exchanges between EU and non-EU organizations enable the implementation of various types and formats of online exchanges (in small groups and moderated by a trained facilitator) focusing on intercultural dialogue, improving critical thinking and media literacy, developing digital and soft skills, or promoting active citizenship and common values. Specific activities may include, for example, discussions between young people or university students on specific topics (digital technologies, combating climate change, gender equality, promoting mutual tolerance, etc.), interactive online courses supporting community initiatives, or trainings of youth workers or university staff, who want to work on virtual exchanges with their foreign partners.
Projects are planned for 3 years, the maximum possible grant is 500,000 eur (calculated according to the number of participants), and must always involve at least 4 organizations (two EU Member States or countries associated to the Programme and two countries not associated to the Programme from one selected region).
If you are interested in applying, don't hesitate to take part in the information day organized for this purpose by the European Education and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) on 15 June 2022 from 14:00. If you miss the information day, you will then find a report (in czech) and materials from this event on the CZELO website.
