In this project, 7 organizations from 6 countries develop research-based instruments to help students better understand what social inclusion is and how they can enhance their competences when interacting with marginalized groups. The project partners are: Babes-Bolyai University (Romania, coordinator), University of Bologna (Italy), University of Bordeaux (France), Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University in Warsaw (Poland), Kaunas University of Technology (Lithuania), Utrecht University (Netherlands), and eLearning & Software (Romania).
Project
The aim of the project is to build the capacity of university students, teachers, researchers and youth workers to carry out identity-related applied and research work with youth in order to facilitate optimal identity development among diverse groups of young people in Europe. The project applies interdisciplinary, transnational and trans-sectoral approach and seeks to integrate research, teaching and innovative practical work with youth. The main activities of the project will be focused on development of three intellectual outputs: 1) course curriculum for an intensive program on optimal identity development among youth, 2) compendium of articles on identity-related research and applied work with youth, and 3) open educational resource on tools to facilitate optimal identity development in youth. The project is implemented by Mykolas Romeris University (coordinator, Lithuania), University of Bologna (Italy), Babeș-Bolyai University (Romania), University of Bordeaux (France), Cardinal Wyszyński University in Warsaw (Poland) and Tolerant Youth Association (Lithuania). The project is funded by the Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic Partnership Programme.
