New projects funded by the Erasmus+ Programme
eucen has recently started to work as full partner on three new exciting projects which were approved under the Erasmus+ Programme. 

The first project is called BALANCE and is coordinated by the University of Tallinn. It aims to support and equip women, their workplace leaders and adult educators to better manage work-life balance and their digital wellbeing in the post-Covid19 working world. It will develop: 
- A Library of Experiences, housing authentic insight into the experiences of women working within a global pandemic.
- A Guide to equip adult educators with the knowledge and understanding in order to upskill their learners.
- An Online Course enabling distance/flexible learning for managers and workplaces leaders to improve their understanding and applied knowledge of the project topics.
eucen co-leads the development of the Library of Experiences and leads the dissemination and promotion strategy.

The second project is called Digital Wellbeing for Higher Education Lecturers (DWEL) and is coordinated by the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava. It aims to design, develop and implement a new approach to train HEI lecturers and managers in digital wellbeing. The project will develop: 
- A Digital Wellbeing Report, introducing and analysing the challenges to digital wellbeing experienced by HE lecturers and managers as part of the wider current digital transition.
- A Resource Pack, in the form of case studies, guides and template documents which will enable HE managers (particularly HR managers) and institute and department heads to better understand the options open to them and to develop concrete plans, policy and practice suitable to boost their own organisation’s digital wellbeing performance.
- An Online Course, providing lecturers with the knowledge and skills to be proactive in safeguarding their own digital wellbeing in order to maintain high quality teaching performance over time. 
eucen co-leads the development of the Digital Wellbeing Report and leads the dissemination and promotion strategy.

The third project is called 5p-Competences and is coordinated by the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. It aims to develop a competence framework for sustainable development competences, which is specifically tailored to adult education. It will produce: 
- A Frame of Reference that will enable the identification of competence categories.
- A Competence Framework that should form a basis for formal and informal learning of sustainable development competences.
- A Digital Competence Framework to be used in virtual learning environments.
- A Training Programme for full-time and voluntary adult educators, in which the theoretical basics, elements and practical application possibilities within the framework are conveyed.
- A European network and community of practice in which educational practitioners and those responsible for education can come together, exchange experiences and good practices, and learn from one another.
eucen actively contributes to the development of all the project results and also leads the dissemination and promotion strategy.

Further information on all three projects will be provided in due course through this website and through our regular Newsletters. You can also follow the projects through the dedicated social media channels.
