Inclusion is a process, an act that embraces diversity and establishes a sense of belonging. It is rooted in the belief that every person has worth and potential and should be valued. As an implementer of the Orange Knowledge Programme, how do you really secure this in a scholarship, project or training?

In this session we invite you to share your views on inclusion. We aim to use your input for future improvements in knowledge cooperation.


The focus group takes place on 27 January from 12.00 PM till 2.00PM CET (GMT+1).
The session consists a plenary opening, keynote and closure. After the plenary opening, you are asked to join the discussion session of your choice:

  1. Individual scholarships
  2. Group training & Institutional Collaboration Projects

More information on the programme will be shared soon.


  • Helpful and inspiring practices on how to foster inclusion within the implementation of educational project and programmes
  • Suggestions on how to improve instruments and tools to better address inclusion within programs like OKP in the future.
