eu erasmusErasmus+ is the EU’s Programme to support education, training, youth and sport (2014-2020) which allows, through EU funding, opportunities for study, training, comparison, working or voluntary experiences abroad. Every year scholastic organizations can participate in an announcement in order to present specific projects of mutual exchange with other EU schools, constituting a partnership to share best practices and experiences.


According to the municipality’s school policies, in the last announcement Arcobaleno pre-school in Carpi, as representative of the whole UtdA school system 0/6, participated in a project called What's up in education: new models for future pre-school services. In the project, along with Arcobaleno pre-school, which has assumed the role of promoter and coordinator of activities, other two European partners are involved, a Swedish one - Ojeby forskoleenhet - and a Slovenian one - VRTEC Jelka. The project, presented along with other 203 applications, was one of the 45 approved and funded projects, with an overall budget of 123.340 euro (just over 38.000 euro for Unione Terre d’Argine).
The whole project is realized with the support of Pedagogical Coordination Area and School facilities and quality Area - Educational and Scholastic Services Sector at Unione Terre d’Argine and it's supervised by Erasmus Plus National Agency.
