In 2021, IMPACT EdTech continues to support promising start-ups whose solutions aim to boost innovation in education. Last month and as part of our First Open Call, a total of 4 start-ups were selected to participate in the IMPACT EdTech OC1 Pilots. Their solutions serve to make education more inclusive and to support personalised learning or skills development of children and teachers.

European Schoolnet is opening a call for teachers, educators and education experts based in the EU and H2020 associated countries to test or provide feedback on solutions developed start-ups from the IMPACT EdTech project. We are looking for 12 teachers and education specialists in total (3 per solution) who are ready to test out these prototypes and provide feedback on their pedagogical use: 2 solutions will be tested in the classrooms (piloting type A1) and 2 will be entering a focus group co-creation process (piloting type A2).

Deadline extended: Applications are open until the 7 April and the pilot will start mid-April 2021 and end at the beginning of July 2021.

Are you interested to apply, but still have some questions about the calls such as: What are the application’s requirements? or Which solution would best fit my profile?

Below you can find a summary of the 4 start-ups participating in this Open Call:
