Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad.
Set to last until 2020, Erasmus+ doesn’t just have opportunities for students. Merging seven prior programmes, it has opportunities for a wide variety of individuals and organisations.
Detailed information on these opportunities, including eligibility criteria, is available in the Erasmus+ Programme Guide. An indicative funding guide for some centralised opportunities is also available.
Nowadays, a gradual distancing of young people from the book is observed by teachers. The written
word has lessened due to image and sound. Reading a book isn’t one of teenagers’ priorities. As teachers, we are aware that the friendly relationship with a book helps:
We offer bilingual training in these levels at School. We were the first School in our province teaching non-linguistic subjects in English.

– “School: Area of Peace”, “CoEducation”, Educational Small Business, Innicia, Coexistence at school, Sportive school, Erasmus + (VET and Schools)…

The Moravian-Silesian Research Library in Ostrava is a regional library located in former industrial city and region that has been transforming to current social and economic conditions. It is founded by Moravian-Silesian Regional Office, one of the fourteen administrative regions into which the Czech Republic is divided. Its collections containing over 1.2 million items are focused on research and educational literature. The library cooperates with secondary schools, universities and hospitals in forms of providing relevant materials for study and work as well as giving lectures.

„Gh. Asachi ” County Library Iasi is a public library structured according to its encyclopedic profile and aims to be available to the local community through its facilities and programs, meeting the citizens’ need for information, education and recreation. Nowadays everything is happening at an alert pace and the library, an institution with a conservative tradition, is subjected to intense social and cultural pressure. For keeping up with its patrons, its purpose as an institution of culture and education it was extended with modern information and advisory services.
Thanks to these teaching/learning meetings, we have the opportunity to exchange experiences and to rebuild our educational practices. We will attempt to make the students love school and education, through literature books. Their repulsion for studying, which often leads them to leaving school or avoiding higher education, is often due to the students not understanding the texts. Through discussing a literature book (about a subject which is thought to be interesting by them), at Reading clubs, the students will develop critical thinking, creativity and the ability to understand and comprehend the content of texts. The love of books, will lead to the love of school, which will result in less students leaving school, and more students choosing to proceed to higher education. The attempt to develop the love of reading will not have limited potential. It will keep on evolving after the end of the project, via the development of e-library and of the Web Reading club.
Through these meetings, we will have additional important results:
During the project 4 transnational meetings will be held. The first one was held in Kilkis(Greece), the second will be held in Ostrava(Czech), the third one in Iasi( Romania) and the fourth one in Nicosia(Cyprus). In those meetings two persons per partner participate in every meeting. The persons who participate in the meetings are the coordinators of each partner and the teachers who are responsible for the Teaching-Learning- Training meetings and for the e-library of every partnercountry. The work sharing, the understanding of the activities that every partner has undertaken and the control of the work progression will play an important role in the success of the project . For all these, apart from the online meetings and the contacts via e-mail, the direct contact of the partners in the transnational meetings will be necessary.
