The European Commission has been funding research and innovation on learning technologies for the last 15 years through successive multiannual framework programmes aiming to bring together European research and innovation excellence in cross-European co-funded projects.
The scope of the programme overall is very comprehensive, reaching from formal to informal learning and workplace learning contexts: for example, in the 7th framework programme in 2007-2013 the Commission funded 50 projects with total funding of 185 million euros. See Research and Innovation for ICT in education and Technologies for learning and skills.
The current framework programme “Horizon 2020”, running from 2014-2020, has published several calls for proposals on learning technologies. Herewith you find links to the call texts and selected proposals.
- ICT-21-2014: Advanced digital gaming/gamification technologies with a total budget of 17 mio euros
- ICT-20-2015: Technologies for better human learning and teaching, with a total budget of 50 mio euros (see the attached brochure for selected proposals)
In 2016 we have published two calls:
- ICT-24-2016: Gaming and gamification with a total budget of 12 mio euros
- ICT-22-2016: Technologies for Learning and Skills, with a total budget of 31 mio euros
We are currently negotiating the selected projects from these two calls, more details can be found on the EC-TEL 2016 keynote presentation, below (will also be published on the conference website).
