This scheme aims to encourage and enable volunteers all over the world to join forces and implement projects on the ground, which are in line with ESAA's aims, promote Erasmus+ and are of mutual interest of the EC and the volunteer
ESAA Projects Scheme
We have a new ESAA-Projects-Scheme. This is a quarterly scheme.
The three phases of the scheme:
Phase I: Competition
In the first phase we have the call for Project Ideas ESAA Projects Call (the submission deadline of the ideas is approx. 6 weeks after the call´s launch), the evaluation process and the notifications of the results (6 weeks after the submission deadline).
Phase II: Project Elaboration
In the second phase the accepted Project Ideas must be developed to a detailed project design including all relevant information (resources, exact timeline, etc.). The service provider (SP) and the submitter will elaborate together the project implementation plan. The SP will support the development of the project.
Once the design is ready, the SP and the submitter will conclude with a formal agreement and the project plan will be presented to the EC for its final approval. Given the formal agreement on the implementation plan and the EC’s approval the project can enter phase III.
Phase III: Implementation
In this phase, most costs and expenses can and will be covered according to the implementation plan directly by the SP, unburdening the project coordinator and the participants from advance payment
The project coordinator will implement the project (in the next six months) and at the end of the project she/he must send a final narrative report to the SP together with a news item (wrap-up).
