CLIOH-WORLD is a new Erasmus Network. It is based on the findings of several previous projects. It intends to take an important further step towards increasing the critical understanding - on the part of European students and citizens in general - of Europe's past, present and future and its role in the wider world. The underlying motive is to fight xenophobia at its base, encouraging an inclusive European citizenship by providing the necessary tools for learners of all ages.

The main goals of previous European History Network projects (CLIOH, CLIOHnet, CLIOHnet2, CLIOHRES) have been to improve the understanding of national histories as they are studied, taught and learned in European universities. We have emphasised putting into contact and creating links between national historical narratives, preparing tools and materials to structure history programmes that can make learners aware of how national historical viewpoints have been created, and how and why they may contrast with the beliefs and understandings about history in neighbouring countries. uses its consolidated experience and methodology to deal with further challenges: first, to develop learning and teaching of EU history itself, including European integration and expansion, and, second, to promote knowledge of the links with the histories of other continents as well.

The main products envisaged are plenary working meetings, meetings of smaller working groups, dissemination activities in all partner countries, development of links with European and World History associations in other continents, production and dissemination of Guidelines and Reference Points for Higher Education programmes in EU and World History, development and implementation of an EU History quality label based on Tuning competences and state of the art internal quality enhancement procedures, development of the website, production and dissemination of new materials for innovative history teaching and learning.

CLIOH-WORLD will disseminate its results in Europe and in other continents, giving students and teachers everywhere useful agreed guidelines and tools for implementing them.
