  • Establish a partnership to research and exchange experiences on digital and STEM education for adults in partner countries, and then lead to the elaboration of a finalized training format.
  • A Training Format with the educational programme for STEM and digital literacy, gathering research results and best practices having as aim to promote digital and scientific education
  • A Joint Staff involving educators in digital and scientific literacy, having the Training Format as an educational tool.


The European Commission has set among its priorities to pursue science education for responsible citizenship and to follow The Digital Competence Framework 2.0, which considers Information and data literacy to be one of the fundamental components of digital competence. The Training Format will be tailored to the needs of adults and adult educators to foster the development of knowledge, skills, and competences of digital and scientific literacy. The format will be scalable, targeted at basic skills but aiming at reaching a higher level of knowledge and will pursue the ultimate goal of promoting digital and scientific literacy as fundamental references for informed, active and involved citizens.
