ERASMUS+ accepting Applications for Youth Dialogue Funding Program
The Erasmus+ UK National Agency is accepting applications for its 2020 Youth Dialogue Funding Program. It is open to organisations across all sectors of education, training, youth and sport.
1000 new grants and donors
Any public, private or not-for-profit organisation actively involved in these areas may apply for funding.
The overall programme objectives are to:
View and receiving grant information
boost skills and employability;
modernise education, training and youth work;
focus on young people
Youth Dialogue project has three phases:
planning and preparation;
implementation of the activities;
evaluation (including reflection on a possible follow-up)
Deadline Free Grants
All Erasmus+ projects are co-funded and Erasmus+ grants will not cover all costs – the grant is intended to be a contribution towards the costs of project implementation and mobility activities. Projects are usually delivered and reported using only a pre-financing payment or an advance. The UK National Agency can make a grant offer on the basis of either pre-financing covered by a financial guarantee, pre-financing in several instalments, or a grant offer without pre-financing.
Please note, a formal financial capacity check does not apply to public bodies or international organisations, or where the grant request is less than 60,000 EUR.
What activities are possible?
Projects can last between three and 24 months and do not need a partner from another country unless transnational meetings are organised. Young people should lead the activities in all stages of the project from preparation to follow-up.
Typical activities include:
We cover grants
meetings, events, seminars, debates and discussions;
meetings and seminars linked to official EU Presidency Youth Conferences;
events and debates linked to the European Youth Week;
consultation, including online opinions polls and surveys; and
events that mirror the workings of democratic institutions at local and national levels, and encourage young people’s direct participation.
Young people should be involved at all stages of these youth democracy projects, from preparation to follow-up. Projects can last between three and 24 months, and involve a minimum of 30 participants.
Young participants: young people aged between 13 and 30 who reside in the countries involved in the project.
Decision-makers: if the project foresees the participation of decision-makers or experts in the youth policy field, these participants can be involved regardless of their age and geographical provenance.
Minimum 30 young participants must be involved in the project. Participants from the country of the receiving organisation must be involved in each activity.
National activities: the activity must take place in the country of the applicant organisation. Transnational/international activities: the activities may take place in any of the Programme Countries involved in the activity.
Exception: Only in duly justified cases and if the main activity includes elements of dialogue with decision-makers at European level, an activity can take place at the seat of an Institution of the European Union.
