Pan-European Gathering and Regional Cooperation: announcement of the recipients
On April 28, 2023, EuroClio launched a call for applications to the EuroClio Regranting Scheme, offering grants for Regional Cooperation and Pan-European Gathering projects. We believe that supporting transnational exchange and peer learning between history educators from the bottom-up, increases the probability that initiatives also answer educators’ real needs on the ground.
The Evens Foundation had the role of carefully reviewing all the applications. Based on their judgement, we are pleased to announce the awarded organisations.
We are convinced that this cooperation will lead to more transnational cooperation between history educators and EuroClio’s member associations on the enhancement of history education in Europe. We would like to thank the European Union and the Evens Foundation for their support.
