|"In a world of ever-evolving technologies, increasing internationalisation and demographic changes, high quality, lifelong education and training is as crucial as ever. To enhance human capital and employability, people's skills must be continiously upgraded to allow everyone the chance to participate fully in society.In the European Union, enlargement has seen drastically augment the degree of diversity, the number of states, cultures, languages and minorities, and also regional and economic disparities. Europe is confronted with challenges and opportunities intrinsic to the integration process and different levels of development. At the same time, Europe struggles to give an all-inclusive answer to the global economy and nascent knowledge society.|
|The EU promotes development models and environment respect, in harmony with local needs, advanced quality of life and democratic participation. Models where access to available funds be given to everyone.
In this context, we believe that citizens willing to take up active roles in the European construction, should be able to do so concretely, and to achieve this they need to learn how to be interconnected with EU institutions, tools and mechanisms, as well as EU financial instruments.
This is why we created this cultural project, EURIDIT, to bridge a gap existing between factual, territorial needs in local and regional contexts, which have particular relevance for Europe's and Community political trends development; between policy and programme initiatives promoted by EU institutions and resources made available for their translation into European projects.
We created EURIDIT to help citizens acquire competence, or indeed excellence in EU-funded project development, implementation and management, and (not least) dissemination, with a view fostering learning advancement in fields which are of particular relevance for development of a European dimension, as well as promoting the value and innovative potential of european co-operative work."
