The INCLUDEME idea was born in November 2002 during a contact seminar for future Comenius projects of the German Socrates Agency. As coordinator I thank Ms Prof. Dr. Mattisen, Vice Rector of the Tallinn University, and Mr Dr. Nonnenbroich, 2nd head of the Centre of Political Education Schleswig-Holstein, for their support and reliance in the pre- and application phase of the INCLUDEME project.

Many thanks to Mr Prof. Dr. Paredes, Vice Dean of the Faculty of Educational Sciences of the Autonomous University of Madrid, who created the project name.

Moreover thanks to the EU Commission Education and Culture, to all responsible persons in participating universities and institutes and companies for project funding.

“TO WORK WITH ONE ANOTHER” MEANS “TO LEARN FROM ONE ANOTHER”

Education and training are terms with specific contents and claims characterised by demands that should comply with the ever-changing societal and technical developments. At this point in time, these terms and problems are being discussed in all European countries. The incorporation of innovative concepts in training and education while looking ahead of changes within society can be desirable but at the same time, they have to be seen with watchfulness and caution. Conclusions in terms of further development of contents in training and education might be very successful in one country, yet problems of a European exchange, even when prepared with a huge amount of time and energy, are certain because of language barriers and cultural differences. The European Union, more precisely the European Commission for Education and Culture, on the foundation of SOCRATES programme discusses coordinates and makes efforts to implement new concepts of education, its contents and demands.

“TO LEARN FROM ONE ANOTHER” MEANS “TO WORK WITH ONE ANOTHER”

To have a direct influence on education means to examine, scrutinise and perhaps even change the training of teachers. Every European country follows the Bologna Statement of 1999 and decides where it stands, which direction to follow and how fast to develop. The project SOCRATES COMENIUS 2.1 attempts to especially support the shared elements of teacher training in Europe. Educational contents are created by the steering committee (COMENIUS 2.1) and tested by trainee teachers themselves (COMENIUS 2.2.a). This will result in a knowledge exchange, achieving eventuallycommon standards in view of an ever increasing mobility within Europe. The goal is the mutual recognition and certification of the training segments, as well as the direct cooperation of educational institutions for teachers within Europe.
