Time: 20.01.2021

Place: online

Sihtgrupp: SCAR SWG AKIS members

 The SCAR SWG AKIS webinar will be the fifth meeting of the 5th mandate endorsed by the SCAR plenary in December 2018. Its specific role is to start to discuss the following topic defined in the 5th mandate:
The role of education and training in the EU AKIS:

  • Presentation of case studies and H2020 project related to the links between education and AKIS
  • How to mobilize the Erasmus+ program?
  • Situation and priorities in the member states

One of the aims of SCAR AKIS group is to help member states with the planning and implementation process of their AKIS related activities. One of the topics accepted in our 5th mandate is to emphasize the role of education and training in the AKIS. At this meeting we propose to highlight the educational and training dimension of AKIS strategy and action plans, taking into account the full range of experiences in the different Member States. We would like to learn from and discuss the situation and priorities of the MSs and illustrate those discussions with selected case studies. We would also like to explore the possibilities to mobilize the Erasmus+ program to strengthen the educational dimension of the AKIS.
