Erasmus+ School Projects (Key Action 2)

Since 1997, the European Union offers grants to schools for carrying out school partnerships with schools throughout Europe. Those multinational School Projects were to enhance the quality and reinforce the European dimension of school education, in particular by encouraging transnational cooperation between schools and contributing to improved professional development of staff directly involved in the school education sector, and to promote the learning of languages and intercultural awareness.

As part of the EU's Lifelong Learning Programme, the "Comenius-Programme" aimed to help young people and educational staff better understand the range of European cultures, languages and values. They also enabled young people to acquire the basic life skills and competences necessary for personal development, future employment and active citizenship.

Although this so called "Comenius-Programme" came to an end in 2014, the European Union decided to continue this spirit of multinational School Projects and to launch an follow-up Programme called "Erasmus+".

So from 2014 onwards European school projects can be carried through in the framework of the European Erasmus+ programme.

We, the Nicolaus-August-Otto-School are more than happy to offer our students to participate in such Programms from the very beginning. It is our profound impression, that those Programms have stood the test of time for our students.

Our current Programm is called "Get On Your Bikes, Europe's Back In Business".
