Erasmus+ 2021-2027 programme brings over €26.2 billion to support mobility and cooperation
The programme’s budget is €26.2 billion, compared with €14.7 billion for 2014-2020. This will be complemented by about €2.2 billion from the EU’s external instruments.
With this increased budget, Erasmus+ will be more inclusive, more digital, and more green. It will also include DiscoverEU which offers 18 year-olds the possibility to get a European rail pass to travel, learn from other cultures and meet fellow Europeans.

What is the Touring Scheme?
The UK turned down an offer to continue participating in Erasmus after Brexit. Universities and other organisations in the UK can apply for grants to help cover travel expenses and living costs as well as the administrative costs of running the scheme.
The Turing scheme will provide placements across the world. Applications have to be made by bodies such as universities, further education colleges and schools. If they are successful, these bodies can invite their own students to apply for individual funding.

More information HERE

Note: However, the UK universities are still eligible to participate in Erasmus programmes and as long as funding is awarded before the end of 2020 students and staff will be able to go ahead with their exchanges even if they take place after the end of the transition period.
HUM@N Project

In the HUM@N project, we aim to develop a set of tools and guidelines addressed to higher education educators in the field of humanities with the goal to improve their ICT skills, teaching performance and consequently the attainment of their students and motivation. Ultimately, we seek to renovate the classic ways of teaching humanities subjects which are the least likely to be affected by the digital transformation, yet are those that can benefit the most, bringing our cultural heritage to a stake of the European economy in different fields
One of the three tools HUM@N project will develop is a handbook. It’s content has been developed from case studies and policy recommendations and it will help institutions and professors to learn more about the project. The video about the Handbook is HERE

The tracking system for learners in MOOCs and
online learning of the “ASTRE” project

The project ASTRE aims to develop a tracking system for MOOC learners. The tracking system will focus on the impact that the attendance of MOOC and the certification have had on the learner’s personal and professional competences, further education, career path, professional status, earnings etc.

The first intellectual output of the project is a tracking system for learners participating in MOOCs and online learning. At the core of the tracking system a tracking survey is addressed to MOOC learners that have completed a specific course. This survey has been defined for improving the quality of offered online learning courses and its impact on egressed students. The results will be analysed and they will help the course designers, to update the course and implement any necessary change in order to improve the impact of the course in the student success in labour market, either by finding a new job or by promotion.
