EURIDICE | EURopean Inclusive education for Digital society, social Innovation and global CitizEnship

The Digital Transition is deeply changing society. Big technological advances are pervasively changing societal institutions, political structures, economies and culture, and fundamentally impacting how we interact, work, live and even how we think.

European citizens and businesses still depend, for over 80%, on digital products, services, infrastructures and intellectual property from other continents. Therefore, the European Union wants to accelerate Europe’s economy and digitize society.

Despite the opportunities of digital technologies, there are also concerns. Digital technologies are shaped by implicit and explicit choices, incorporating values, norms and economic interests. As a result of pre-existing cultural, social and institutional preconceptions, bias can enter algorithmic systems, leading to systematic unfair treatment and even discrimination, in other words, unwanted digital futures.

Apart from that, digital inclusion is far from achieved: the digital world is still inaccessible or unaffordable for many.

As the European Declaration on Digital Rights and Principles sets out, the EU wants to build a just and democratic digital society, protecting and respecting democracy and human rights, putting people at the center of social and technical innovation, promoting human values, in Europe and beyond.

To ensure a fair and inclusive digital transition, Europe needs all-round digitally skilled social digital innovators – intensively trained to understand the nexus of society and technology, equipped with advanced digital skills and social reflexivity, capable of driving human-centred innovation in inclusive and responsible ways in a rapidly changing society. To build this new generation of reflective professionals is the vision and ambition of EURIDICE.


  1. Building Multi-disciplinary Social Digital InnovatorsEURIDICE commits to nurturing the social innovators of tomorrow by intertwining advanced digital technologies with non-ICT sectors like Education, Communication, and Culture. The approach ensures participants acquire essential technical and engineering skills alongside perspectives from legal, humanities, social science, and business disciplines. Key initiatives include a new EU Joint Master degree, capacity-building for academic teachers, professional life-long learning programs, and facilitating course modules in various languages for broader reach.
  2. Attracting Qualified Teaching Staff and StudentsEURIDICE aims to be a magnet for talented staff and students by offering a highly innovative and interdisciplinary educational experience. The programs are enriched by multiple languages, micro-credentialed training modules for staff, a joint European degree, scholarships, internships, and a robust communication strategy to create a vibrant and inclusive educational community.
  3. Upgrading Digital SolutionsInnovation is at the heart of EURIDICE, promoting a Collaboratorium for Blended International Hybrid Learning. This involves upgrading digital facilities and infrastructures to foster a seamless, virtual, collaborative, and challenge-based educational environment, ensuring interoperability across participating Higher Education Institutions (HEIs).
  4. Establishing Sustainable and Structured PartnershipsEURIDICE is steadfast in cultivating enduring partnerships that transcend the life of the project. It seeks to create a symbiotic ecosystem involving SMEs, institutes, and academic and cultural partners, promoting sustainable growth and innovation in the digital social-educational sector.
