  • 3. Project competition overview 2007 of the Leonardo da Vinci The European Commission has approved the new Lifelong Learning Porgamme for the period 2007–2013, which replaced the Socrates, Leonardo da Vinci and eLearning programmes that were in effect until the end of 200. The Lifelong Learning Programme comprises four sectoral programmes, the “transversal” Mobility projects programme and the Jean Monnet programme: Lifelong Learning Programme Erasmus Leonardo da Vinci Comenius Grundtvig Higher education Initial and continuous School education Adult education and continuous training vocational training Transversal programme programme 4 key activities: policy (Cedefop, Arion, etc.), languages, ICT and dissemination of information. Jean Monnet programme 3 key activities: Jean Monnet activities, European institutions and European associations. The total budget for the Lifelong Learning Programme is €6.97 billion for the period 2007–2013. The aim of the Lifelong Learning programme is to contribute through lifelong learning to the development of the European Community as an advanced knowledge society, with sustainable economic development, increased employment, better job opportunities, and greater social cohesion, by ensuring good environ- mental protection for future generations. Firstly, it aims to foster interaction, cooperation and mobility between education and training systems within the European Community, so that it can become a world quality reference. The Education Exchange Support Foundation administers the Lifelong Learning Programme in Lithuania. The aim of the Education Exchange Support Foundation is to help utilise international cooperation possibilities, administer programmes, and disseminate results of their activities. The Leonardo da Vinci programme is designed to support those involved in vocational training and further vocational training activities while acquiring and applying knowledge, and obtaining skills and qualifica- tions; to encourage professional improvement, and increase employment and participation possibilities in the European labour market. The aim of the programme is to unite institutions from different European countries including vocational training institutions of all levels, local governing institutions, employers’ organisations and other public organisations, while developing a policy on future vocational preparation. 4 | Compendium of projects of the leonardo da vinci programme approved for funding in 2007 5 | Compendium of projects of the leonardo da vinci programme approved for funding in 2007

The total duration of mobility projects is from 6 to 24 months. In 2007, € 1,501,000 of funding from the European Commission was granted for the support of the mobility projects of the leonardo da vinci programme.

Transfer of innovation projects of the Leonardo da Vinci programme Transfer of innovation projects are multilateral projects with the aim to improve training systems and focus on transfer of innovations in the vocational training area, including linguistic, cultural and legal adapta- tion of innovative products and processes created under different conditions for national needs. The aim of the transfer of innovation projects is to improve the quality and attractiveness of the European vocational education and training system by adapting and integrating innovative content or results from previous Leonardo da Vinci Projects, or from other innovative projects into public or private vocational training systems and companies at the national, local, regional, or sectoral level. In 2007, the Education Exchange Support Foundation received 11 applications under the bid for transfer of innovation projects of the leonardo da vinci programme. All the received applications met the formal ap- plication eligibility criteria and were assessed by independent external experts. Following the proposal of the selection commission of the leonardo da vinci programme, and the deci- sion of the European Commission, and taking into consideration the independent experts’ evaluation, the Education Exchange Support Foundation selected the five projects with the highest score to be funded. € 1,171,847 was allocated for funding these projects.
