Dear EPALE community,
I would like to inform you that we have successfully started our Erasmus+ project (ID: 2019-1-SK01-KA204-060805).

Moreover, this project will also help career advisors to use new tool in their consultancy.

The ever-increasing financialization and complexity requires financial literacy to be an integral part of the research agenda and of global policy making, in particular in the EU. SUCCEED's partnership was composed of expert educational organizations such as CONFORM (Italy), BICERO (Slovenia) and FUNIBER (Spain) and a wide range of business support organizations: a business incubator, The Hive(Italy) and many networks of enterprises such as SATEAN(Romania), Italian-Luxembourgish Chamber of Commerce (Luxembourg), RES and CBE (both from Belgium).
How can we plan a project that contributes to equal opportunities in adult education? How can we transfer this knowledge? You will learn the conditions of a transfer and you will get practical information to design and implement your transfer activities. The example of Equal Space will show you, what to look for in a transfer.
In the first quarter of this century, digital media has been consolidated as an essential part of everyday life. The digital world presumably presents many advantages and opportunities nonetheless, it also carriers risks and threats we were not used to. In the age of fake news, disinformation, algorithms, artificial intelligence, ubiquitous learning, social networks, etc. it is essential to understand the operating principles and mechanisms of the Internet and media to safely navigate the Internet environment and take informed decisions.
