Launching PR.I.M.E to Promote Inclusive Mobility
In the ever-evolving landscape of education and international exchange, the PR.I.M.E. project, officially launched on October 1, 2023, marks a significant milestone in the quest for inclusivity and accessibility. The acronym PR.I.M.E., which stands for “PRomoting Inclusive Mobility Experiences,” and encompasses a collaborative initiative set to run until March 31, 2026, led by a consortium of seven organizations hailing from diverse corners of Europe.
Comprising this dynamic consortium are Kara Bobowski from Italy, JDC from Lithuania, PSONI from Poland, ESTIA from Athens, VisMedNet from Malta, Cap Ulysse from France, and CARDET from Cyprus. Each organization brings unique expertise and perspectives to the table, creating a potent synergy for the PR.I.M.E. project.
At its core, PR.I.M.E. emerges from a shared desire to make Erasmus+ programs more accessible and inclusive. The project’s overarching goal is to foster innovation and internationalization within partner organizations by enhancing the skill sets of their staff members. By creating specific and innovative tools and resources, PR.I.M.E. aims to equip these professionals with the expertise needed to effectively manage high-quality mobility projects. Notably, these projects will involve participants with intellectual disabilities (PWID) in various sectors, including Vocational Education and Training (VET), Adult Education (ADU), and the Youth sector.
With this in mind, the project is also set to promote greater participation of people with respiratory disorders in Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps (ESC) mobilities. By creating a supportive framework and providing the necessary resources, PR.I.M.E. seeks to break down barriers and create opportunities for individuals who have traditionally faced challenges in accessing international educational experiences.
PR.I.M.E. is more than just a project; it’s a commitment to change. Over the course of its implementation, it will not only enrich the lives of PWID but also empower organizations and educators to embrace inclusivity as a fundamental value. As the project takes off, it is ready to redefine what it means to be inclusive in the sector of international education, opening doors that were previously closed and setting new standards for accessibility and equality. Stay tuned for updates as PR.I.M.E. embarks on its transformative journey towards a more inclusive future.
