The international Erasmus+ project FTDCHE – Fostering the Transversal Digital Competences in Higher Education- for the creation of the advanced platform Sollertia which will promote training in digital competences in Higher Education adds new advances, after the meeting held last week at the Polytechnic University of Bucharest (Romania).

This is the first face-to-face meeting that the partners have held since FTDCHE began its journey in December, and has included representatives of the University of Málaga (Spain), the University of Applied Sciences of Leuven-Limburg (Belgium), the University of Primorska (Slovenia), the Polytechnic University of Bucharest (Romania) and the Šiauliai University of Applied Sciences ( Lithuania).

At the meeting, which was held in the ‘PRECIS’ building on the Romanian campus, the guidelines for the development of a curriculum on digital skills based on the European benchmark DigComp were outlined. Likewise, the tasks that will give rise to the teaching materials that are part of the project have been planned.

With a duration of 30 months, this Erasmus+ project integrates five European partners, leaders in the research and development of Information and Communication Technologies. There is a period of two and a half years for its development, and a financing of 250,000 euros, granted by the European Commission.

Fostering learning in digital skills through transversal and inclusive content is the objective of this initiative, which is committed to the internationalization of education.
