Description

Euro4Science 2.0 is a spinoff of a very successful partnership, previous Euro4Science Erasmus + Project. Euro4scince includes partners from Portugal, Poland, Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria and the UK

Euro4Science 2.0, includes the development of a Forensic Science Educational Toolbox which, despite exploring the same "case-file" forensic like approach as in euro4Science 1, now pretends to wide activities subject expanding the range of topics from STEMs. The philosophy of enquiry education and case files exploration complemented with lab and field activities is now comprehensive to incorporate important priorities of present day citizenship and challenges including health education, environmental sustainability and inclusive society and human rights.

In order to implement the innovative educational activities proposed and responding to a clear identified need, Euro4Science will promote the creation of a network of teachers properly trained in a hierarchical chain of workshops, from central "Train the trainers" hubs to local "hotspots" in order to reach a significant number of teachers and through them ultimately by secondary school students.

Hence the objectives of the project, include:

  • Tackling of early school leaving
  • motivation of disadvantage students
  • promote scientific and media literacy
  • address values and topics such as  freedom, tolerance , non-discrimination and respect for  human rights
  • address environmental sustainability and health by exploring transdisciplinary "Case Files"
  • develop activities related to everyday hot topics which are transmitted via media and internet, thus requiring proper literacy
 Activities

Four Intellectual Outputs:

  • I.O.1: Forensic Science Educational Toolbox Version 2
  • I.O.2: Video Library
  • I.O.3: Forensic Science in Education -  Edition Book
  • I.O.4:European Network of Forensic Sciences in Education

Multiplier Events

Description

The project is going to perform study visits on leading SMEs to investigate their structure and exchange practices, study visits to SURVIVORs SMEs in partner countries affected by the crisis (GR, SP, PT) and collect the material necessary to create a training programme as a roadmap to success. A powerful tool will be created as a platform for further development, connection of executives between SMEs, exchange of practices and a flexible learning program that will link the specific needs of SMEs (which will derive from the desk and field research) in terms of internal capabilities, with the training offered, in a way that will allow effective use of resources (people/time) and connect learning with business results.

The main project objective is analysed in creating a powerful tool &a flexible training program that will manage to link the market needs with the training offered, in a way that will allow effective use of resources (people, time) &clear connection of training with business results.

 Activities

The activities of the project are:

  • To gather the existing examples, good practices and expertise, available in each participating country and prepare them for the experience share to carry out methodological as “Capacity building” and “Common learning and training”.
  • To organise 7 Transnational Project Meetings (TPM)
  • To organise the respective exchange and trainings
  • To realise the agreed communication, dissemination activities and measures
  • To organise regional and local activities to promote the project across target groups to involve relevant stakeholders as direct or indirect project beneficiaries with dissemination activities for each partner in press, social media etc (as an obligation of the partners);
  • To contribute to the evaluation and reporting process, i.e. most of all by a proper and sound reporting

  Seven (7) Short-term joint staff training events will be organized in partners’ countries (Italy, Greece, Bulgaria, Poland, Spain). 2 Staff members from each partner will participate to the training activities. These training events aim at visiting either SMEs in each partner country that have survived through the crisis but also niche SMEs that have upgraded their management system and have dealt with the crisis the past few years, and they have profit, and are sustainable.

Description

BLEND IN aims to prepare and empower one of the most vulnerable groups of our times, young migrants & refugees seeking a better life in a third-EU country. The ultimate objective of the project is to develop the social, civic, intercultural competences of the young refugees and migrants resettled in a host country, inform them on their rights and promote their autonomy, active citizenship and participation in social life and labour market, thus preventing their social exclusion, combating discrimination and segregation by facilitating their smooth cultural and social integration in the host community.

To achieve this objective, the BLEND IN partners will develop a cultural, social and language integration toolkit in the form of a mobile application, orienting the young newcomer refugees into the hosting societies’ cultural and social realities and norms. As the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) underlines, cultural orientation is a very important part of a well-managed resettlement process, that contributes to reducing refugees’ concerns and overall anxiety, while at the same time increasing their chances of successful integration. Integration is essential for all stakeholders (migrants/refugees and receiving societies), not only as a way of providing economic and cultural benefits but also for ensuring the security and stability of societies as a whole. As refugee integration is a two-way process that involves both refugees and the receiving societies, the project will provide the young refugees and migrants, recently resettled in a new country, with the appropriate tools to help them safeguard their cultural and religious identity while empowering their integration in the new community by introducing to them the most important social, cultural and language elements in their hosting communities, promoting that way intercultural and inter-religious dialogue, tolerance and respect of cultural diversity and human rights.

 Activities

Two Intellectual Outputs:

  • Development of Country-specific Language, Cultural and Social Orientation Material
  • Development of the Refugee Orientation Handbook for Operators
  • Dissemination activities

Four Pilot Workshops Events

  • Pilot Workshop in Italy: 2 full-day Pilot workshops will be organised in Italy, 1 with 15 operators and cultural mediators, and 1 with 15 ethnic community representatives been integrated in the host community for a number of years.
