GET-AHED – Green Education & Transition – A Higher Education online Digital Buddy

Ongoing, on behalf of the European Commission, European Education and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA).

GET-AHED is to be a digital platform developed in consultation with a number of associate partner EU ministries, HEI representative bodies and an existing European University alliance which will provide HEIs across the EU with a range of online tools to enable them to implement the EU’s Green Transition and Green Education and Training priorities.
