About this event

After the success of Webinar Wednesdays in 2020, we will hold a new series of nine weekly webinars to support beneficiaries of and newcomers to European programmes. This series of Webinar Wednesdays will provide learning and training opportunities for people involved in Education and Training, Youth, and Civic Society in Ireland. It will explore the key priorities and values that underpin European Programmes.

We will continue to support participants to adapt to the current COVID-19 crisis through peer-to-peer learning and expert discussions. Each week we will discuss a different theme, as well as share updates on the new Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programmes for 2021-2027.
