Entrepreneurial Education

Top Tips - Developing Your Ent-Ed Project

Top tips (in development - much more to come..)

There is a lot of advice out there, and here we will gradually pull together information that can support you to develop successful entrepreneurial education projects. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please just log in to send an email to the moderators (Elin McCallum or Rebecca Weicht) or share in the forum. 

1. Get Practical! 

Tips for successful ErasmusPlus projects

A short webinar by Bantani Education on the process of developing and writing a European project. This is a great presentation by Briqena Xhomaqi, Director of the EU Lifelong Learning Platform - she gave a webinar going through the process, highlighting key questions to ask and what needs to be included in different section. She also reflects on some of the common mistakes. A very good starting point for anyone thinking of applying for EU funding. https://vimeo.com/192123543

3. Find partners!  

Look for partnering opportunities with organisations you know, or seek out reliable routes to find new connections. Your National Agency can also advise on different ways to do this.

One way is through Project Development Workshops such as the one being coordinated by Vleva with partners including LifeLong Learning Platform, EARLLAL and the regions of West Finland, Baden Württemberg and Île de France:  

In 2017, Skills will be Key! - a project development workshop: 11 organisations are looking for partners in their European consortium on skills to apply for the upcoming Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic partnership and KA3 Policy reforms calls or Horizon 2020.  If you are interested in an international cooperation and feel like being a potential partner in an innovative project on skills, you can apply for maximum two of the following project ideas until 26 October 2016 (midnight). On Thursday 10 November 2016 you will know whether you can participate in the project development workshop.
