The main challenge the project addresses is little support available for recognition and validation of knowledge, skills and competences of international project managers active in Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in the adult education sector, acquired through formal, non-formal and informal learning.The challenge was named during the realisation of the related project - “The first-time international projects managers support network”.

Erasmus+ Small-Scale Partnerships

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.
