CONTESSA is a new Erasmus+ project funded by the European Commission that makes a significant contribution to the branch of Capacity Building in Higher Education (CBHE). The project is led by the University of Graz and aims to further the development of teaching skills in Cambodia and Sri Lanka through carefully selected partnerships with institutions of higher education and local educational organizations.

This program will supply teacher trainers with the skills and information needed to transfer knowledge to teachers and trainee teachers. We call this our multiplier program as the goal is for teacher trainers to pass this knowledge on to others. It is one of the ways we hope to see this project live on long after the official end. The program also serves to empower trainers to implement CONTESSA in teacher training.


CONTESSA is actively presenting in the several social media plattforms and making the results widely accessible to the public as well as to the scientific community as possible, different activities and events are planned:
