Programme

Afternoon (14:00 – 18:00)

  • General management of Erasmus+ projects

The session will be based on real cases from Erasmus+ projects allowing to share, identify and choose the most appropriate methods to successfully achieve the desired results and stay on track with the project implementation.

  • Erasmus+ project management: challenges and solutions

No project goes 100% according to the initial planning, but every challenge has multiple solutions. During this session we will explore commonly faced challenges in the Erasmus+ projects and various methods to address them.

19:30 Social dinner

Morning (9:30 – 13:30)

  • Communication in Erasmus+ projects

External communication is highly important in Erasmus+ projects and this session is an opportunity to learn more on how to use the communication tools effectively, meet the project visibility requirements as well as keep track of project dissemination indicators.

  • Effective management of project events

There are a number of factors that influence the success of project events which is why the session will be devoted to share practical tools and know-how in how to maximise the impact of internal as well external project events (for instance, conferences, trainings, multiplier events).

Lunch

Afternoon (14:30 – 17:30)

  • Handling risks and conflicts in Erasmus+ projects

Challenges in Erasmus+ projects may vary from minor delays, management of “sleeping partners” to major changes in the project plan or even partnerships, therefore during the session we will focus on foreseeing/identifying risks and designing possible scenarios for handling conflicts in Erasmus+ projects.

  • Internal and external reporting

We will focus on the most essential aspects of documenting and keeping track of the project progress, its main milestones and indicators in the context of internal and external reporting.

Morning (9:30 – 14:00)

  • Erasmus+ projects: Context. Opportunities. Impact.

We will look into the policy context and opportunities that Erasmus+ projects hold by focusing on priorities set by the European Commission for the Erasmus+ (primarily for KA2 and KA3) as well as by exploring concrete project examples and their path to achieving an EU-scale impact.

  • Sustainability of Erasmus+ projects

Sustainability of Erasmus+ project results matters therefore we will analyse a number of highly impactful Erasmus+ projects and learn more about various approaches to ensure sustainability of project results.

  • Conclusions, feedback and further collaboration avenues

High quality training with engaging and relevant content. I enjoyed the style of delivery too. We had a small group and the style was highly interactive with lots of group activities and discussions. Not too much ‘chalk and talk’!
