The ESC ACADEMY PRO project, funded by European Union, aims at building up the transition towards the adoption of the European Student Card (ESC) initiative by improving the digital capacities of Higher Education Institutions. The main objectives are to develop a needs assessment of the grass-root and policy practices at the national level on HE actors (associations, HEI, and students) related to the digitalization of Erasmus+ and the ESC; to create capacity building training activities to promote, disseminate and implement the ESC initiative in association to HEI and students; to foster the capacity of the various associations to encourage the digitalization of Erasmus+; to promote the project’s outputs by boosting the ESC initiative; and to create and put in place relevant policy mechanisms for the promotion of the European values and the acquisition of digital skills in the European Education Area.

The results will showcase the experience of HE stakeholders in European value promotion, the ESC initiative, digital competencies, and student participation.

EDU-Home is a new Erasmus Plus project financed under the KA2 Cooperation partnerships in Higher Education and coordinated by the Italian Fondazione EDUCatt.

EDU-Home aims to develop a platform for dialogue and cooperation among housing and mobility stakeholders, guaranteeing transparency, reliability, and timeliness, as well as addressing the asymmetries that currently make housing a significant barrier to mobility. Finding adequate, sustainable, and economically accessible accommodation represents an essential element both practically and from an emotional and psychological standpoint. In this way, the ambition of EDU-Home is to enhance inclusivity in Higher Education Systems, reduce housing-related mobility barriers, support International Mobility within the European Education Area, and involve stakeholders to enhance housing offer presentation.

By creating a system of dialogue and feedback between supply and demand, the project aims to develop a “virtuous” mechanism where stakeholders are encouraged to accredit themselves and effectively present their housing offers, provide a feedback system that supports trustworthy housing providers, showcases specificities and value-added services, and promotes a diverse range of housing choices, emphasizing unique characteristics and supporting the well-being of individuals.

The ESC-tension 2 Project, funded by the EU, is dedicated to accelerating the adoption of the European Student Card (ESC) within the European Economic Area (EEA), with a specific focus on students. The project aims to align with the European Commission’s vision for a European Education Area by 2025, ensuring that all students across Europe can benefit from the ESC Initiative.

The European Commission has outlined its ambition to establish a European Education Area by 2025, aiming for universal accessibility to the benefits of the European Student Card Initiative. However, a significant barrier to the widespread adoption of ESC is the lack of awareness among European students regarding its potential advantages. Recognizing this challenge, there is a pressing need to engage directly with students, employing a bottom-up approach to foster ESC adoption and utilization.
Building upon this recognition, the ESC-tension 2 project has been developed as a continuation of the previous ESC-tension initiative, which was also coordinated by the ENDISU Foundation. The primary objective of ESC-tension 2 is to generate awareness among students about the potential benefits of ESC and to equip them with the necessary resources to effectively utilize the card.

The project will develop a comprehensive range of materials designed to raise awareness among students about the ESC’s potential benefits. These materials will include training packages and operational tools aimed at guiding and motivating students to utilize the ESC in practical scenarios.
