International Projects


Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain experience, and volunteer abroad. It runs for seven years, from 2014 to 2020.

Erasmus+ aims support the European modernisation and internationalisation agenda in higher education, in particular the quality of student and staff mobility.

Erasmus+ is open to many individuals and organisations, although eligibility varies from one action to another and from one country to another.

Individuals can take part in many of the opportunities funded by Erasmus+, although most will have to do so through an organisation taking part in the programme. The eligibility of individuals and organisations depends on the country in which they are based.

Eligible countries are divided into two groups, Programme countries and Partners countries. Although Programme countries are eligible for all actions of Erasmus+, Partner countries can only take part in some, and are subject to specific conditions.

Institutions must hold a valid Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) in order to participate in Erasmus+. The Erasmus Charter for Higher Education provides the quality framework for Erasmus+ funded activities carried out by an institution.

The European Researchers’ Nights are events dedicated to popular science and fun learning.

They are a unique opportunity to meet researchers, talk to them, and find out what they really do for society, in interactive and engaging ways.

This can be through hands-on experiments, science shows, learning activities for children, guided visits of research labs, science quizzes, games, competitions with researchers and more.

The European Researchers’ Night takes place every year all over Europe and in neighbouring countries the last Friday of September. It is organised in Poland inter alia in: Tarnów, Kraków, Nowy Sącz, Poznań, Szczecin.

The events are supported by the European Commission as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, which is an EU funding programme to boost the careers of researchers.

IDEA Innovative Digital Education Approach

Project number: 2020-1-MK01-KA226-VET-094564

The project is implemented under the Erasmus + KA2 program: Strategic Partnerships.

The strategic partnership „IDEA” aims to improve of the quality of education process of VET schools across Europe regarding development of new innovative methodologies for creating digital lessons for VET schools, improvement of digital skills of the staff and creating interactive and inclusive lessons for students.

In order to do this, the partners will enhance the skills of the skills/educators for working with innovative methods online . The partners will develop a combination of methodology and digital tools for teachers’ use.

New methodology for online/digital lessons is developed as it is more effective, successful and popular than online lessons based on one-side presentation lectures.
This methodology will help students connect, be interactive, be more active and creative during lessons.

This is a strong tool in times when visual/ digital communication is very important, especially among youth.

Target groups:

  • primary: teachers, educators, Staff in VET schools
  • secondary: students in VET schools, other teachers/educators

Visegrad+ 21910035 – CLIL-Higher Education Teacher.

The project CLIL-HET aims at grouping ESP and CLIL experts/specialists to prepare the platform for networking within V4 and Western Balkan (WB) countries to support disciplinary teachers at Higher education institutions (HEIs) to set up English education environment (EEE).

HEIs are pressured to provide courses taught in English to enhance students´ and teachers´ / experts´ mobility within EU or/and in non EU world to share knowledge, to network and to participate in solving challenges of the current global world.

Most HEIs in V4 countries provide study programmes for their students in their mother tongues and what is more, in some cases ESP courses for students have been cut or completely cancelled.

This might be one of the factors which lead to lower level of mobility than EU expected. To support incoming and outgoing mobility of HEIs in V4 and also in WB countries.

Project partners :

  • University of Szeged, Hungary
  • The Institute of Technology and Business in České Budejovice, the Czech Republic
  • University of Applied Sciences in Tarnów (Poland)
  • The University in Pristina’s Faculty of Philosophy in Kosovska Mitrovica, Serbia

Project number: 2020-1-PL01-KA226-HE-095653

The project is implemented under the Erasmus + KA2 program: Strategic Partnerships.

The project focuses on the customization of the standard face to face materials for teaching technical subjects in the engineering field in such a way that it will meet the needs of the on-line education.

The need emerged during the pandemic, where many higher institutions were called to change their teaching practices and update their training methods and materials.

The goal of the project is the development, preparation and implementation of the online courses related to electronics, microcontrolers (e.g. AVR, ARM, PIC), board-based practice (like Arduino) and programming languages that are introduced together with physical equipment (e.g. C, C++, Python, VHDL, etc. ).

The courses will be based on the opensource solutions and become available as Open Educational Resources (OER). These courses can be realized independently by students or supported by educators in the frame of on-line education.
The courses will be prepared by the partner Universities and submitted to a common online platform (i.e. Moodle or relevant) to support local education needs and extend the didactic offer for students.

To strengthen the online collaboration and language benefits the courses will be prepared in English allowing also future use of the materials for higher education students in Europe and beyond. The project also focuses on the development of a tutorial on how to organize the remote online learning for higher education students.

Project starts: 01.03.2021
