DARE (Developing programs for Access of Disadvantaged groups of people and Regions to Higher Education) is a cross-regional project under the Erasmus+ Key Action 2, founded by the Educational, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency ("EACEA") of the European Union. Coordinated by Haifa University of Israel, its consortium consists of 15 Universities and Colleges in Israel, Georgia and the European Union.
The aims of the project are: 1. to promote inclusive education and responsive education in Georgia and Israel by widening access to higher education for potential and existing students from three vulnerable groups: women, ethnic minorities and those with disabilities. It also addresses potential students which live at peripheral areas in accordance with Bologna Process and United Nations criteria. This will initiate the right of individuals with special needs to access education, to enjoy the right of participation in everyday society and to overcome discrimination against them in society by raising awareness and acceptance in society; 2. to raise the public awareness in access, equity and diversity and the principles of social dimension and social inclusion; 3. to facilitate transfer of best practice in access and widening participation; 4. to modernise governance, management and function of institutions; 5. to improve student retention rates and prepare them for the labour market.
