The Stand will showcase in a consistent and coordinated way the main programmes covered by the portfolio of Commissioner Mariya Gabriel in Education, Training, Youth, Science, Innovation and Research, in particular the flagship programme Erasmus+ and the EU programmes for scientific cooperation between EU and non-EU researchers and science and innovation policy makers. DGs EAC, RTD and JRC will join forces on the Stand to raise awareness of the concrete benefits of the different programmes and of their specific relevance for supporting a just and successful green transition. They will also highlight the synergies between the programmes. The stand will promote international mobility opportunities for young people, students, teachers, administrators, scientists, innovators and researchers supported by Erasmus+, Horizon 2020, including the Marie-Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), as well as the Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme under the Pan-African Programme.
EU Education, Training, Youth, Science, Innovation & Research Actions
International mobility opportunities for young people, students, teachers, administrators and researchers. Capacity building and cooperation opportunities for youth organisations, education, training, science, innovation and research institutions
The stand will showcase the benefits of international mobility for individuals in terms of intercultural understanding, formal qnd informal learning opportunities and skills acquisition. This will be exemplified i.a. through testimonials from international students, alumni and fellows. The stand will also show the positive implications of individual mobility for institutions and organisations in terms of exchanges of experience, good practice, peer learning and internationalisation. It will showcase examples of international partnerships for capacity building, science, innovation and research in areas linked to the green transition. Furthermore, it will show benefits on policies and systems - for example reducing barriers to free movement, fostering the modernisation of higher education or the harmonisation of academic curricula in key areas with high growth and employment potential.
