CybARverse is a strategic partnership project funded by the Erasmus+ program of the European Union. Digital literacy along with a responsible and safe use of technology is promoted by the Digital Education Action Plan (Action 7). The Digital Education Action Plan (2021-2027) is a renewed European Union (EU) policy initiative that sets out a common vision of high-quality, inclusive and accessible digital education in Europe, and aims to support the adaptation of the education and training systems of Member States to the digital age.
This project will therefore support the cyber-resilience of Vocational Education and Training (VET) for the organisations involved. To ensure that Cybersecurity knowledge is put into practice, this initiative makes use of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) to support cybersecurity awareness and literacy in a more efficient way, as well as to transfer knowledge to professional competences.

Tasks leading to the creation of the academy will involve a holistic Quality Assurance Plan followed by:
- Analysis of the organisational capacity for establishing a CybARverse academy (SELFIE test & roadmap)
- Development and testing of national CybARverse academy training offers (on-/offline)
