Climate Change in Agriculture
Nowadays, one of the major problems the world faces is the climate change. The primary sector, plant and animal production, depends a lot on the climatic conditions and it is expected to carry most of the weight of this change. Therefore, adjustments are necessary in the way that we perform agriculture; adjustments that will allow the continuation of the production of quality food from animal and plant origin and that will ensure the survival of the human race. In this direction, the wider objective of this project is to create qualified scientists who will contribute to the development of environmentally friendly and sustainable agriculture and will be readily absorbed by the labour market. The key actions of this project will be: a) the development, testing and adaptation of new content for courses, learning materials and tools and b) the university-enterprise cooperation. The major outputs of this project will be: a) new updated material in the field of "climate change, crop and animal production" in two languages (French and English), b) the development of the relevant courses, c) the development of modern learning materials (educational and mechanical equipment related to the courses) and d) the development of learning tools (e-learning platform, dynamic web site), that will all contribute to the succession of the wider objective of the project. The impact of this project is expected to be significant since: a) it will provide the HEI's with the appropriate tools to produce highly trained scientists in the respective field and b) it will strengthen the internationalization of HEI and the capacity to network effectively in research, scientific and technological innovation.

Promoting Inclusive Strategies for Disadvantaged Seniors
Although many senior citizens enjoy good health, aging often brings difficulties preventing older citizens from accessing goods and services and living independently. Ensuring accessibility for all is both a question of fundamental rights and crucial to making the most of the potential that senior citizens have in social and economic terms. Adult learning provides a means of up skilling or re-skilling those affected by unemployment and age, as well as making an important contribution to social inclusion, active citizenship and personal development. The consortium proposes to offer innovative, targeted and high quality lifelong learning opportunities to senior citizens for the acquisition of digital skills, which will support in a systemic way active aging, access, social inclusion, participation and personal development though the use of the digitalized learning eco-system to be developed, as well as through the e-services, e-governance, e-participation and e-communication provided in each partner country. The Seniors Go Digital project aims to offer opportunities to re-skill or up-skill their digital competences to become active citizens and socially included in the digital world in order to guarantee their activeness, social presence, e-access, e-participation and personal development, to design, implement, monitor and evaluate a toolkit that will re-skill or up-skill seniors' digital competences to become active citizens and socially included in the digital world and to pilot-test the "Seniors Digital One Stop Support Centers".

Online Portal and Active Learning System for Senior Citizens in Europe
The project "OPALESCE" is an international consortium under the ERASMUS+ Project with focus on the Strategic Partnership for adult education. Project partners are from four countries: Germany, Greece, Portugal and Cyprus. The goal of the project OPALESCE is to create a learning system focused on senior citizens that runs on mobile devices and downloads open learning content from an online platform. The duration of the project is 36 months. The system will integrate different media formats and interactivity into an innovative "micro unit" format suited even for small screen devices such as smartphones and easy enough to be used intuitively. The idea is to present learning content in small units that only fill one screen, and the user can go to the next page by swiping to the next screen almost as if turning the page of the book. Swiping back takes the user to the previous screen. The consortium believes that designing and supporting such a system has a huge potential thanks to the scalability of the approach. In addition the partners see the growing interest of senior citizens in technology and are eager to deliver a product that can actually make such a big difference.

Summer e-Challenges: Acquiring Soft & Digital Skills Through Non-Formal Free-Time Practices
According to the 2015 Eurydice Report the average summer holidays in Portugal, Bulgaria, Cyprus and Greece is about 11-13 weeks. Could this non-working be utilized in a useful and productive way so that young people can acquire skills and competences that are not highly promoted in formal education? Non-formal learning has been acknowledged widely in the last decade proving unique opportunity to involve young people in activities on a voluntary basis. The 'SUMMER e-CHALLENGES" projects project aims to utilise the summer non-school time of young people in order to promote the acquisition, recognition and validation of basic and soft skills with an emphasis on digital skills that young people gain in non-formal learning opportunities, so that they become transparent, visible and useful for their academic and adult life. The project proposes the introduction of an innovative "Summer Challenge Programme" which young people can participate on a voluntary basis in order to acquire a combination of skills, competences, knowledge and attitudes that are considered essential for personal fulfillment and development, active citizenship, social inclusion and employment. It is in essence is a self-directed, non-competitive, voluntary, flexible, and adaptable scheme of non-formal learning activities that is based on young people's' personal development (13-16 yrs old).

Promoting Technology Enhanced Teaching in Primary Schools
The PRIMETECH project addresses the need in EU policies for high quality teachers able to innovate using ICTs and for improved data on their digital competence which can lead to inclusive education. It also tackles the need to enhance the uptake of ICT in teaching and learning, to promote stronger coherence between different EU and national transparency and recognition tools, and strengthen the professional profile of the teaching profession. According, to the recent Survey of Schools: ICT in Education, two-thirds of teachers in the EU learn about ICT in their own time, and almost all are positive about ICT impact on students. Despite this readiness, the Survey revealed that teachers' ICT use in lessons and confidence in their digital competency has to increase. The PRIMETECH project aims to create the Technology Enhanced Teaching Competence Code which will be used as the basis of the creation of the Open Badges system to be used for the recognition and validation of teachers' practices, knowledge and skills acquired, to design and implement the PRIMETECH professional development program for teachers with in-built ICT training offered both on-line and school-based, constant monitoring and assessment procedures through a mentoring and peer assessment process offered in an open environment and to design a dynamic, interactive and powerful tool eco-system-open platform which will provide e-learning, e-connectivity and e-communication functionalities accompanied with learning modules, training material, guides etc. From: 2016-2018 as Partner - ICTs Platform & Tools Developer & Trainer
Innovation and Employability for Women
The project's goal is to determine the status of technology in terms of participation and awareness among women, particularly young women in the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and the benefits arising from their use in the field of employment. The project will focus on exploring how social networks and the Internet can fight the employment disparities and promote new opportunities for entrepreneurship and self-employment of women and especially, young women. The project involves the detection and evaluation of the existing possibilities offered by the electronic networks, tools and markets, as well as professional, educational, social networking platforms and e-learning. A parallel scientific research will document and analyze the current use of the Internet for employment purposes and the awareness of young women in Greece. Finally, the project will be completed with a feasibility study that will lead to the formulation of standards for the creation of a research and innovation center for women. From: 2015-2017 as Scientific Coordinator
Code and Youth: An Innovative Programme in the Digital Era
As youth unemployment is a major issue all other Europe, mastering ICT skills is becoming critical to fill the huge gap created by the digital revolution. However, as there is an every growing need for ICT experts in the EU, evidence suggests that less students are choosing this field than before. Up to now, ICT lessons were focusing purely on computer literacy - teaching students, how to word-process, how to work a spreadsheet and how to surf the Internet. These skills were considered enough, as to be an ICT expert. However, there is nowadays an ever growing need to teach the next generation computer science, ICT and digital literacy, thus going beyond the skills of how to use a computer, to teach young people how to code, how to create a program, but how a computer works and how to make it work for them. The project aims not only to open up new routes for teaching coding and programming to young teenagers (14-16 years old), but also offer them career options in order to initially have a first-hand experience of the various fields of computing and then choose to study in a related topic. In the summer when students have a lot of free time, it has been seen as an opportunity to offer an innovative and interactive programme for teaching coding to teenagers, but also to explore the field of computing for a better career guidance that will bridge the skills gap between education and the labour market. The project pioneers to design, develop, implement and evaluate a creative and interactive programme which aims to introduce young people/teenagers 14-16 yrs old to the world of 'coding' and 'computing'.

Grandparents and Grandchildren Keep In Touch
The world is ageing, and in doing so the society and the family are changing. Ageing can be an enjoyable experience if elderly people have access to Lifelong Learning opportunities. The more integrated and socially included grandparents are the more society gains and as a result the family members gain. This project aims to promote active ageing and intergenerational solidarity through developing an innovative ICT training course for acquiring the necessary skills in order to participate in the modern world, both for pleasure and for business. Grandparents will be professionally trained with the involvement of their grandchildren who will transfer their current knowledge on social networking. When they will acquire the necessary skills they will set up a social communication network between them. The final stage will be the launching of the GRANDS HELP DESK on the web/platform where they can offer support, help and guidance to children who are in need. From: 2014-2016 as Partner
