For people with autism, learning to interact with first responders (police officers, firefighters, and medical emergency/ambulance workers) is critical, such as understanding autism and preparedness to respond effectively and safely to situations involving individuals on the spectrum is to first respondents.

Evidence shows first responders lack autism awareness although they are 7 times more likely to come in contact with an individual with ASD than the average person.

ALERRT’s aim is to provide first responders in Europe with knowledge and understanding about ASD and the skills necessary to recognize, interact, and appropriately treat individuals with ASD in cases of emergency. This will be done through special training delivered by VET trainers, also available on an e-learning platform.

Next to that, a safety kit will be designed for people with ASD and their caregivers, serving as a prevention tool providing first responders with sufficient information needed to recognize their specific situation and adapt their intervention to meet their emergency needs.

The project has started on the 1st of October 2020 and will be accomplished by the end of September 2022.

European Green Deal – together for greening our economy

Climate change is an existential threat the whole planet is currently facing and requires a large-scale, firm approach. With the right plan and resources, the challenges brought by this climate crisis can be turned into opportunities. That is what the European Green Deal is striving to achieve.


This new set of policy initiatives has been introduced by the European Commission in order to address European Union’s ambitious, yet attainable plan: making Europe a climate-neutral continent by 2050, reducing the greenhouse gases emissions to 0. So, the European Commission created a blueprint for accelerating this transition: European Green Deal.

Thus, the Green Deal Call creates the most complex and financially extensive Horizon 2020 programme so far, with 1€ billion available for research and innovation projects that respond to the climate crisis and help protect Europe’s ecosystems and biodiversity. The Green Deal Call aims for clear, discernible results in the short to medium-term, but with a perspective of long-term change.


The deadline for submitting project applications within the Green Deal Call is January 26, 2021. Selected projects are expected to start in autumn 2021.


With its experience in diverse European programmes and network of contacts, European Development Agency can assist your entity in building the partnerships required for Green Deal Call enrolment. By deploying its know-how, mobilising its reliable partners, and constantly supporting the partnership-formation process, European Development Agency desires to be a game changer in collectively tackling climate change.

3D-Help Project Evaluation

3D-Help, a project led by EuDA aimed at providing adult people with education in the technology of 3D-Printing, has received a remarkable evaluation from the Czech National Agency. Motivated by the EU’s identification of this development as one of the most important emerging technologies as well creation of many new jobs and opportunities where digital literacy is required, projects’ partners worked on making EU adults competent in 3D-Printing.

Four different organizations joined us in the project: SC Ludor Engineering SRL in Romania, Macdac Engineering Consultancy Bureau Ltd in Malta, Social Innovation Fund in Lithuania, and Strojarska Technička Škola Fausta Vrančića in Croatia. Each of them was responsible for one of six project outputs defined in the beginning. As a lead partner, EuDA handled two of them.

With the finalization of the project, we have successfully executed the following outputs:

  • Guidelines on the use of 3DP in Adult Education
  • 3DP Case Studies for Adult Education
  • Curriculum of a 3DP Course for Adult Training
  • 3DP Course Content for Adult Training
  • 3DP Trainer Guidelines
  • 3DP e-Learning System for Adult Training

The content of the project and its outputs have been greatly appreciated by the Czech National Agency.

The feedback prepared by the Agency noted that 3D-Help was the first Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership for Adult Education project to address 3D Printing in the Czech Republic. It highlighted the international dimension of the project and recognized its benefits, such as strengthening partners’ network of strategic partners in industry and creating new connections to help them engage in international research collaboration. The project’s activities and outputs were valued for creating a space for gaining new contacts, experience, knowledge, information, trends, and skills.

The NA acknowledged the project’s success in aligning with the plan defined at the beginning and appreciated EuDA’s effective management, proper monitoring of the project budget, and time organization. The project’s impact on the target groups has been very positively evaluated – through its outputs, we achieved to get the participants acquainted with 3DP technologies, raise awareness of the potential of 3D Printing and motivate the disadvantaged groups to learn about 3DP and ICT tools in general.
