Society Can Help Without Regulations

According to the assessment of Claudia Piovano, Managing Director of Galileo Progetti Italian-Hungarian Non-Profit Ltd., their project implemented under the 'Europe for Citizens' programme made the young people involved aware of the meaning of historical differences, as well as the fact that the consequences of decisions made in the past are still with us. The most important result was the demonstration of the fact that remembrance is not about reliving the past but to help the future.

“Everybody Loves Belonging to an Intellectual Community”

The Hungarian founding member of the Phiren Amenca international network, RGDTS, has been operating for five years, coordinating the work of a number of volunteers all over Europe from Budapest. Its goal, however, is much more complex: it offers self-respect, civic engagement, European identity, and, in particular, a dialogue between Roma and non-Roma people. With grant support from the Europe for Citizens programme, the organisation has been given an opportunity now to assess, summarise and make available for others the experiences of its members. Coordinator Marietta Herfort told us about their activities.

What makes a good literary translator? - A framework for European literary translator training

Launched in 2014, the Petra-E project seeks to develop a framework of reference to help the theoretical and practical training of literary translators. The tool to be developed can be compared to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, which focuses on learning foreign languages; it describes specific knowledge and skills which a good literary translator should gradually master at various levels. Such are, besides proficiency in the source and target languages, the knowledge of the literature and culture of the given languages or an ability to transfer different styles.

Comenius Coordinators Club: You Are Not Alone

Many of you who coordinate projects at your schools must be familiar with the feeling that you could do with a little external help in how to find cheap but suitable accommodation abroad, where to print your project products in good but affordable quality, who to turn to at a local museum, for example, if you want to take your visiting project partners there for a visit. In Debrecen, a free-to-copy solution was conceived: they founded a local Comenius Coordinators’ Club.

Competing for the future - An insight into the international projects of the University of Pannonia and Budapest Business School

It is common knowledge that competition enhances performance and creativity. But how can you exert social impact through competition? What happens when students of a higher education institution are asked to find a solution to the problem of a company in a competitive situation? Last year, a number of projects which set the goal of exchanging good practices or developing innovative contents were implemented in international partnerships under the Erasmus+ programme. These are so-called strategic partnerships. We will rely on a winning project, coordinated by Hungarian and Spanish partners, to present how to use the method of competition innovatively, as well as the results that can be thus achieved.

We visited one of the evening programmes of the Hungarian Language and Culture Summer University, winner of the European Language Label in 2013.

Making animations in the classroom - The AnimClass Leonardo project

With this method, students process various parts of the curriculum through animation making processes, that is, they create a short movie to present certain curricular topics.

Work-based learning and supporting apprenticeship

Hotel industry technician training, launched as a result of the project called Second Chance in Hospitality, is a good example for cooperation between the training institution and the employer. Apprenticeship, well-established in Germany, improves the employment chances of unemployed youth particularly effectively; that was the reason why the practice-oriented training of hotel industry technicians was adopted, seeking to satisfy the actual market needs arising within the hotel industry by training professionals who can be deployed in a number of areas.
