Call for proposal for Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs COS-WP2014-4-05 Closed!


The overall objective of the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs 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

  1. Promotion of the programme.
  2. Enrolment of entrepreneurs.
  3. Assessing applications from NEs and HEs.
  4. Building relationships.
  5. Management of grant agreements, commitments and financial assistance.
  6. Preparation of the exchange.
  7. Follow up of the exchange.
  8. Management, quality control and evaluation.
