SALTO Resource Centre for Inclusion and Diversity in Education and Training
Supports organisations across Europe in implementation of Erasmus+ projects that focus on inclusion and diversity.
The mission of our SALTO Resource Centre is to support and promote inclusion and diversity in Erasmus+, a European Union programme that provides opportunities for education, training, youth and sport. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to participate and benefit from Erasmus+, regardless of their background or circumstances.
To achieve this, we offer a range of resources and services to help individuals, organizations and institutions participate in Erasmus+ in an inclusive way. This includes guidance on how to design projects and information on best practices for promoting inclusion.
We also host events and workshops that bring together stakeholders from across Europe to discuss issues related to inclusion in Erasmus+. These events provide a platform for sharing knowledge and ideas and for building networks of like-minded individuals and organizations.
We also work closely with national agencies that implement Erasmus+ to support them in improving the quality and impact of the programme at the national level and to share knowledge and expertise.
Our team is made up of dedicated professionals with a passion for equality and inclusion. We are committed to making a positive difference in the lives of those we serve.
Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you find the information and resources you need and we are looking forward to supporting you in your journey towards inclusion and diversity in Erasmus+.
