About Path2EU4AE (2022 - 2024)
Between 2022 and 2024 the project PATH2EU4AE has aimed to empower access to EU funding programmes for adult education organisations and to provide an online tool as an information path to suitable EU funding opportunities.
There are numerous EU funding programmes – but we also need the appropriate knowledge to get funding. This is difficult, especially for small and atypical adult education institutions that have little or no prior experience in applying for funding.
Between 2022 and 2024 a partnership led by CONEDU (Austria) has aimed to support the ET2030 priority "Supporting teachers and trainers" by making it easier for those institutions to access centralised EU programmes by providing an information pathway as an online tool for professionalization – Path2EU4AE. The project outcome enables these institutions to assess the benefits and requirements of EU programmes for projects and international cooperation and to decide in which cases a programme is suitable and promising for the institution. Users of the Infopath become better aware of the condition and eligibility of their organisation. Thus, they can initiate further steps for learning activities on both an organisation and individual level, to improve towards successful applications and funding.
The main outcome of the project is the Infopath as an online tool. It helps adult education institutions find suitable EU programmes and assess which programmes fit the needs and requirements of the institution. Based on the institution's needs and goals, the pathway leads to appropriate EU programmes for the institution and provides basic information about the programmes by filling in and working through the different items of a questionnaire for self-assessment.
The partners in the project are confident, that this should better enable adult education providers to submit successful project applications, participate in the European community and contribute to European adult education policy.
The Infopath is freely accessible under a CC BY 4.0 NC ND licence, hosted by the Austrian adult education platform (https://erwachsenenbildung.at). The lead partner CONEDU is the publisher of this platform on behalf of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research.
