This training course is designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to develop successful project proposals for the Erasmus+ 2021-2027 programme.The Erasmus+ Programme is the European Union’s flagship programme for education, training, youth and sport. It provides opportunities for individuals and organisations to engage in international activities that promote personal and professional development, foster mutual understanding, and contribute to the modernisation of education, training and youth systems.
Over the course of two days, participants will explore the various features of the programme, including its funding streams and priorities, and learn how to navigate the requirements and criteria for proposal submission.
Through interactive exercises and group activities, participants will also gain a thorough understanding of the importance of defining project objectives, conducting needs analysis, and designing a winning project concept and methodology. They will learn how to develop a comprehensive work plan and identify work packages and activities, as well as how to monitor and evaluate project progress and ensure quality assurance.
Participants will also learn about the importance of risk management in project development, building effective partnerships and cooperation arrangements, and ensuring the long-term success and sustainability of their projects. In addition, they will learn about budget and financial planning, including how to create a comprehensive project budget and assess the cost-effectiveness of their projects.
