The project will run under the 2014-2020 Competitiveness Operational Program and it has a total value of RON 21o million, 85 percent representing European non-reimbursable funding.
The specific objectives of the project are:
- Creating the technical infrastructure necessary for the use of OER and WEB 2.0 resources and services in education for at least 2,000 schools;
- The provision of 4,500 gymnasium units with wireless equipment within the project;
- Increase the share of teachers using the wireless-campus internet to 15 percent by the end of the project’s sustainability period.
