Grassroots projects September 2015
Grassroots are small-scale, accessible ICT projects, from which the results immediately can be implemented in education. Grassroots are a great example of introducing and testing new techniques in education.
Individual teachers and students can submit a proposal for Grassroots projects. For each Grassroot the budget is no more than €1000.
Besides individual Grassroots projects, departments can request financial aid for a program of 5-10 combined Grassroots.
