Higher Education Institution for Societal Engagement

The HEISE project, co-financed by Erasmus+ programme supports synergy between education, research and innovation activities. In this project we will approach the phenomena of societal impact from various perspectives - entrepreneurial, management, social sciences and policy and focus on artistic, art based and qualitative methods. For example, omitting the role of managers attitude towards diversity and social responsibility both in stakeholders organizations (e.g art organizations, cities, business) and in HEI would reduce the outcomes of the project. In addition, entrepreneurship is seen as a tool for integration for example for immigrants, as statistics show that they seem to become entrepreneurs more often than the local inhabitants – either by choice or non-choice. Thus, the project aims to create an innovative and attractive educational model based on experiential and challenge led learning. The innovation lies in engaging the owners of challenges and the students into joint teams and to use arts-based methods to understand the different point of views in solving the challenges.

Innovative integrated tools for financial literacy education across Europe


There is need for increased financial education in view of widespread financial illiteracy and the benefits for individual well-being and society at large that are associated with high levels of financial literacy. Although the OECD policy recommendation to introduce financial education at school is well accepted, there is no consensus on the optimal way to implement financial education at school. By developing innovative materials on financial literacy education, and testing these materials in tertiary and secondary schools, the European EUFin project will provide evidence based tools to improve financial literacy education. 


EUFin involves 14 different partners from five European countries – Belgium, Estonia, Italy, Slovakia and the Netherlands. Taking a cross-sectoral approach, cooperation between these countries is proposed for the project, with universities, secondary schools and organisations dealing with financial literacy promotion participating from each country respectively.


UFin’s main objectives can be defined as follows:

  • An extensive assessment and comparative study of financial literacy;
  • the development of a module on financial literacy education for students in higher education;
  • the development of a module on financial literacy for pupils in secondary education;
  • an assessment of the effectiveness of those modules;
  • the development of a Knowledge Portal.

Three target groups cooperate in EUFin:

  • students and lecturers of teacher training programmes at university colleges and universities;
  • teachers and students of secondary schools;
  • persons responsible at intermediary bodies and organisations;

At the end of the project, scientific and concrete didactic materials, among other kinds, will be made available to:

  • encourage teacher training programmes and other pedagogic disciplines to integrate financial literacy education into their curricula;
  • raise awareness of the importance of financial education among teachers and head teachers of secondary schools;
  • raise awareness of the importance of this topic among pupils and students.

EUFin makes an important contribution to the achievement of the objectives set out in the EU education policy for 2020 in terms of promoting equity, social cohesion and active citizenship as well as innovation, creativity and inclusive entrepreneurship, on all levels of education and training.
