The European Innovative Teaching Award is a new European Commission policy initiative, which aims to highlight and reward the work of teachers and schools and to showcase innovative teaching practices. 

The initiative forms part of the broader European Education Area initiative and is funded by the Erasmus+ programme. 

It provides an opportunity to highlight European cooperation in education through transnational activities.

To celebrate the launch of the first edition of the European Innovation Teaching Award, we warmly invite you to join us for an online event on Thursday 16 September from 10:00 until 10:30 Central European Summer Time (CEST).
