Project in numbers


Project UPGRADE is an Erasmus+ Key Action 2: Adult Education project, aiming at refugees and migrants in the EU in order to assist them through education and training to integrate in the EU society and labor market.

The priorities of the project are: 


  • Improving and extending the supply of high quality learning opportunities tailored to the needs of individual low-skilled or low-qualified adults
  • Facilitating access to upskilling pathways


  • Open education and innovative practices in a digital era


The project’s innovation and added value lies in the very fact that it does not merely seek to train trainers and refugees/migrants. The project goes beyond the training scheme as it incorporates the promotion of EU cultural diversity, access in  OLS (Linguistic Support Tool) and the utility of EU Skills Profile Tool.

Throughout the project's lifetime three Intellectual Outputs will be developed:
