The next deadline for Erasmus+ in the Youth field is 2 February 2017 at 11:00 am Irish time. This deadline is for all Key Actions.
The application process can be time-consuming but we strongly advise that you don’t leave it until the last minute to press ‘submit’! Remember that all applications are processed centrally across Europe. This means that people from every country will be submitting online at the same time. It also means we cannot accept applications submitted after the 11:00 deadline for any reason. Given our limited staff and the need to consult with European Commission colleagues, we also cannot guarantee a quick resolution to technical issues on the day.
The Youth and Adult Education Unit have compiled an Application tip sheet to ensure you’ve completed the necessary steps in the application process. Among the key points to consider are:
You can’t add to your application after submission. An assessor can only ask for clarification of technical details, not the substance of the project. So for example, if you don’t say that an EVS volunteer will receive child protection training before working with a group of young people, the assessor cannot assume this. If you don’t state at what stages of your Transnational Youth Initiative the young people are active, the assessor cannot presume that the engagement is throughout!
Be as clear as possible in your writing. You don’t need to use flowery language or quote huge chunks of policy.
Any annexes you want to attach must be less than 5GB. Make sure that the entire mandates are attached, not just the signature page.
Don’t forget that you can watch all the videos from the Erasmus+ Youth in Action MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) on our YouTube channel. These videos will give you a better understanding of the philosophy of Erasmus+ Youth in Action, and help develop quality projects matching formal and quality criteria.
If you have queries, you can contact the Youth and Adult Education unit at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 01 8871260.
Good luck with your applications!
