Apply for scholarships: 2023 Winter and 2024 Summer training for teachers 


The Winter training ‘Multiscale Civic Education for the European Education Area’ offers an insightful and stimulating experience to rethink the school curriculum and to renovate classroom practices, methodologies and materials in all disciplinary areas and school levels, from an innovative perspective on civic agency that enhances and reinvigorates XXth Century ‘critical’ and ‘active’ approaches to pedagogical experimentation.

General Course Information

The training is supported by the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme, in the framework of the Jean Monnet Teacher Training project “Multiscale EU“. It is open to in-service teachers of all school levels, from ISCED 1 to 4, and from all EU countries. The course schedule is designed to foster advanced exchanges and engaged interaction with the course lecturers and among participants themselves, along a three-day immersive in-person programme that allows also for extra activities in the beautiful and green location of the Villa Casana park in Novedrate, near the Como Lake. Course activities and participants’ accommodation are provided by the eCampus University facilities. The course adopts a consistent and convinced ‘multilingual’ policy: working languages will depend strictly on selected participants’ skills and will aim at enhancing all mother tongue resources available in the participants’ group. Upon successful completion of the Winter training, you receive a certificate acknowledging your participation. See below for a detailed schedule of the training programme.

Application procedure and scholarships

The Multiscale EU Summer training seeks participants from any EU country who are in-service teachers in the primary or secondary or post-secondary non-tertiary education levels. Up to 30 scholarships are available to cover all costs of participation: travel costs are refunded up to 200€, no tuition fees, accommodation and subsistence directly offered at the University campus.

Submission of applications is open from 28 August 2023 to 5 November 2023 (but read the very important update in the red frame below and read here the list of selected scholarship winners for the 2023 Winter edition; read here instead for the 2024 Summer edition winners’ list) through this online form. Applicants will be notified of their status as a scholarship recipient, alternate or non-recipient immediately after the deadline by email. The recipient list will also be published on this online page of the Research Centre website.


Since the scholarships available for this winter round of our training initiative are just 30, on the one hand, and the travel costs will continue to raise in the next weeks, on the other hand, we decided the following:

  • we’ll select the 30 winners of the Winter School scholarships among the applications we received within tomorrow, 18th October 2023;
  • we’ll communicate and publish online the 30 selected winners by the end of this week: we ask all those who will be selected to officially confirm their participation by the 25th October – in case of no answer we’ll proceed with the selection of other applicants;
  • we’ll organise a Spring/Summer edition of our training initiative, always in Novedrate, offering 30 new scholarships;
  • we’ll select the Spring/Summer scholarships winners among the applications collected through the present call, that for this purpose will remain open up until the official deadline (5th November 2023);
  • we already invite you all to take part to an online training initiative that we decided to offer to all applicants – the initiative will start with an online meeting that we will schedule in two different dates in order to facilitate everybody’s participation. On that occasion you will have the opportunity to explore with us the various training and didactic opportunities our project can provide to you and your school: after the meeting, all interested teachers will be able to design and submit a specific classroom experimentation that we’ll certify as structured training hours, once implemented, duly documented and after discussion of its results with us.
    We’ll communicate the dates of the online meetings as soon as possible but we can anticipate that they will take place in November.

The selection procedure is carried out by the Multiscale EU project team on the basis of the following criteria:

  1. Eligibility: candidates must be in-service teachers at ISCED level 1 to 4 in any of the EU national school and education systems.
  2. Commitment to put in question and to enhance personal civic skills both in relation with and independently from his/her professional role.
  3. Coherence of personal motivation with Multiscale EU project objectives.

The selection will also prioritize the maximisation of the number of national school systems represented by awarded participants and a viable balance among ISCED levels and linguistic skills in order to allow for cooperative workshops during the training experience. The selection procedure may also include an online oral interaction in order to better assess candidates.
