Call for proposals 2018 — Erasmus+ programme — Key action 3: Support for policy reform — Social inclusion and common values: the contribution in the field of education, training and youth EACEA/10/2018 Closed!


This call for proposals will support transnational cooperation projects in the fields of education, training and youth.

Projects submitted under this call under both lots should aim at:

  1. Disseminating and/or scaling up good practices on inclusive education/youth environments and/or on promoting common values, initiated in particular at local level. In the context of the present call, scaling up means replicating good practice on a wider scale/transferring it to a different context or implementing it at a higher/systemic level;


  1. Developing and implementing innovative methods and practices to foster inclusive education/youth environments and promote common values in specific contexts.

Projects under both Lots are encouraged to actively involve role models as well as activities related to the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, where appropriate.


Projects under Lot 1 — Education and training should lead to results such as:

  • increased awareness, knowledge and understanding of good practices in the relevant educational institutions and communities,
  • increased use of state-of-the-art innovative approaches in policy or practice,
  • increased awareness, motivation and competence of educational leaders and educators with regard to inclusive educational approaches and the promotion of common values,
  • active engagement of families and local communities in supporting inclusive educational approaches and the promotion of common values,
  • more widespread and effective tools to support education and training institutions and learning providers in implementing inclusive education approaches and in promoting common values.

Projects under Lot 2 — Youth should lead to results such as:

  • improved social, civic and inter-cultural competences and skills of young people, including active citizenship, media and digital literacy, critical judgement and intercultural understanding; greater youth participation in social and civic life,
  • improved and innovative ways of cooperation or partnerships between non-formal education sector and schools (e.g. use of non-formal methodologies and informal learning within formal education settings for civic education),
  • enhanced awareness among young people of their fundamental rights and sense of belonging to society, stronger endorsement of democratic values and engagement in practices of anti-racism, intercultural and inter-faith dialogue and mutual understanding,
  • improved outreach to young people from disadvantaged groups (e.g. young people in a ‘NEET’ (1) situation or young people with a migrant background) by building synergies with the local community and making best use of existing networks at local level,
  • enhanced capacity of youth work, youth organisations and/or youth networks to act as forces of inclusion by empowering young people to engage, volunteer and drive positive change in communities,
  • improved expertise in providing basic assistance or equipping of newly arrived migrants and refugees with the skills they need to integrate in a different society or which could be useful for reintegration in the country of origin when the conflict is over, as well as the appreciation of cultural diversity in the community,
  • better integration of newly arrived migrants and refugees and enhanced inclusive climate in the hosting societies, in particular through the planning and organisation of cultural or social activities at local level involving locals and volunteers where appropriate,
  • better information on social media, websites, public meetings, to support the volunteering efforts of the organisation.
