The European Union recently introduced small-scale partnerships into Erasmus+ to reach out and provide opportunities to smaller grass-roots organizations which might have less experience with international partnerships. The small-scale partnership requires only a minimum of two organizations in programme countries to work together; it is open to public or private organizations in the fields of education, training, youth, sports, and other socioeconomic sectors.

The objectives of the program are stated as:

  • Attracting and widening access for newcomers, less experiences organisations and small-scale actors to the programme.
  • Supporting the inclusion of target groups with fewer opportunities
  • Supporting active European citizenship and bringing the European dimension to the local level.

If your organization is new to international cooperation, a small-scale partnership could be the perfect starting step. It requires less coordination than a project with many partner organizations, and thus is a good introduction to the complexities and challenges that can occur with transnational projects.

Find more info about small-scale partnerships—including eligibility criteria, how to set up a project, and funding rules—here on the European Commission’s website.
