Call for proposals 2013 - Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs 63-G-ENT-CIP-13-E-N01C011 Closed!


The overall objective of this programme is to enhance entrepreneurship, develop the international outlook and competitiveness of European SMEs and foster potential start-up entrepreneurs and newly-established micro and small enterprises in the Participating Countries.

The purpose of the call is to select bodies which will act as Intermediary Organisations (IOs) to implement the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme at local level. They will, in particular, recruit and assist the entrepreneurs who will benefit the programme. This call will therefore support actions for organisations enhancing and facilitating the mobility of new entrepreneurs, and is not intended for entrepreneurs willing to participate in the programme.


The Intermediary Organisations will deliver high quality standards so as to deliver the following expected output for this call for proposals:

  • further developing a network of new entrepreneurs (NEs), host entrepreneurs (HEs) and Intermediary Organisations (IOs)
  • enabling around 700 new entrepreneurs to work alongside and learn from a host entrepreneur in another Competitiveness and Innovation Programme (CIP) Participating Country. Therefore, 1400 entrepreneurs should be involved in an exchange under this action
  • creating new businesses, joint ventures and spin-off companies and foster cross-border business cooperation
  • enhancing the international activities and innovation potential of host entrepreneurs.
