With the digital transformation being one of the main priorities of the Erasmus Plus programme, the European Commission is giving a call to youth organisations across Europe to launch a network of National Advisory Services on digital education and training.
Indeed the Erasmus Plus’ horizontal priority aims to address digital transformation through the development of digital readiness, resilience, and capacity in the educational sector.
The network for digital education and training also serves the Digital Education Action Plan 2021-2027 whose aim is to support the adaptation of the European education systems to the digital age.
National Advisory Service for Digital Transformation
A National Advisory Service (NAS) is an organisation responsible for coordinating or advising on the implementation of digital education policy.
They carry out, monitor, evaluate and fund digital education activities. They also support education and training organisations in their digital transformation and help regional and local governments in the implementation of related policies.
Network of NAS on digital education and training
The Commission is organising a first exploratory meeting with European organisations interested in participating in a network of National Advisory Services responsible for coordinating or advising on the implementation of digital education policies.
The first exploratory meeting will take place on October 28 2021, 14:00-16:15 (CEST). It will initiate a conversation at the EU level on the implementation of digital education policies.
If your organisation is willing to participate, fill out the form for application.
