Designing and supporting inclusive practices in Higher Education

The InclusiveHE project focuses on supporting inclusiveness towards individuals of diverse ethnic or social backgrounds, regardless of religion, sexual orientation, migrants, people with disabilities, and other disadvantaged groups in higher education. InclusiveHE will develop the tools and resources that will support universities and other higher education institutions to develop innovative policies and practices for integrating inclusive practices in the process of designing and teaching courses and is expected to elevate the supply of high quality inclusive higher education opportunities for all.

Target groups and stakeholders in higher education, including education faculty and instructors, policymakers, and university leadership teams, learning designers, and support staff as well as students, will benefit from receiving innovative and quality guidelines and support regarding the development of inclusive practices that foster inclusion. In specific, target groups will be introduced to the stages of the design-thinking approach in order to apply this method in the design of their education programmes. This methodology serves as a framework that helps individuals to define problems, collaborate with others, develop possible solutions, and refine them through various reiterations until a viable solution is generated.

Drugs Awareness Training & Education


DATE – Drugs Awareness Training & Educationaims to elevate the conception and knowledge that will shape attitudes and promote empathy to drug abuse. The implementing partners of the project will share and discuss best practices regarding drug awareness and prevention, utilising their expertise and shared knowledge in the field to develop and make available a cohort of innovative tools that will contribute to holistic approaches to thwart drug abuse.

The DATE Project aims to provide a holistic approach to drug awareness and prevention by enhancing the power of education as the main focus to alert and prevent substance abuse.More specifically, the DATE project aims to bring drug awareness education to young digital citizens in their online environments. The Date project will develop the first interactive infographic-based drug awareness campaign and educational resources. The direct target groups of the project are front-line youth workers and young people.

Traditions, Recipes, and Cuisines of Europe using Smartphones

Inclusive learning societies should be one where people are given opportunities to develop and to cooperate as equal individuals. By harnessing ICT (Information and Communication Technologies), barriers to participation for older people and migrants could be removed by using mobile phones as a learning tool.

In this aspect, the project TRACEUS – Traditions, Recipes, and Cuisines of Europe using Smartphones – aims to develop and curate a database of recipes, cuisines, and traditions associated with European cuisines using mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) as learning tools. More specifically, the TRACEUS project aims at using an accessible model which builds on harnessing inclusive technology learning for citizens (older people and migrants) at risk of being e-excluded in the traditional sense and ensuring that their culinary customs and traditions are recorded in an accessible way. Target groups of learners will benefit from receiving quality training to become authors of digital content in which they can share knowledge, skills, and experiences. 

The VET-ification of Online Gaming through innovative challenge-based learning

According to Eurostat, in 2019, 16.4% of young adults in the EU, aged 20-34 years old, were neither employed nor receiving training nor education. CARDET, in collaboration with Association de Gestion des Fonds Européens from France and partners from 6European Union countries, participate in the project CASINO, under the ERASMUS+ KA2 programme of the European Commission.

The CASINO project aims to motivate NEETs (Not in Employment, Education, or Training) to engage in vocational education and training by developing a compendium of Digital Breakouts to develop key transversal skills such as literacy, numeracy, critical and creative thinking, taking the initiative, learning to learn through information retention, and digital literacy.NEETs will enhance their professional profile as they will be equipped with innovative methodologies and strategies to use learning materials. Thus, they will gradually grow their development with learning, personal development, self-esteem, and motivation.
