Feel invited to use the Toolkit on European project management dedicated to the Civil Society Organisations!

The aim of this Toolkit is to support the beginners in the field of European project management and all the persons/organisations willing to cooperate and network on the European level.

This Toolkit is primarily dedicated to the members, workers, co-workers, volunteers, and the adult learners of the Civil Society Organisations (CSOs). We believe it may be also useful for any public and/or
private organisation; in general - a wide range of education – related organisations, institutions, and decision makers.

The Toolkit addresses the need for more practical examples, more case studies, material for further self-directed learning in the field of European projects initiation, designing, developing and realising.
It is designed as a practical and reusable resource for the practitioners in the field of European project management.

The Toolkit is divided into two parts:
1. Part 1, related to project planning and designing. The aim of the first part of the Toolkit is to guide you from a project idea to a successful proposal - is available HERE.
2. Part 2, related to project coordinating, monitoring and evaluating, is aimed to support the successful implementation of the European projects that have been co-funded by the European Union - is available HERE.

The key chapters of the Toolkit part 1, "Project planning and designing" answer the following questions:

1) How to define the project idea?

2) How to find and chose the proper EU grant programme to realise my project idea?

3) How to find and choose the project partners?

4) What is the project structure/framework?

5) What are the competences needed to realise/coordinate/manage European projects?

 

The key chapters of the Toolkit part 2, "Managing, monitoring and evaluating the project" answer the following questions:

1) Technical management: How to execute the project as promissed in the project application?

2) Team management - how to manage communication, relations, motivation, potential conflicts solving?

3) How to assure the right project monitoring - from the perspectives of the project manager?

4) How to assure the right project evaluation: process (time-budget-quality) and impact evaluation?

5) What are some useful project management supporting tools?

The Toolkit was developed by the FIRST NETWORK members:
Foundation of Alternative Educational Initiatives (PL), COOSS Marche Onlus scpa (IT), Folk High School Association Surrounding Budapest (HU), Rightchallenge (PT), Húsavík Academic Center (HAC) In the frames of the EU NET project, co-financed by the European Union.

The title: ”EUropean NETworking as a method for further training and exchange of ideas in the lifelong learning sector” [EU NET].

Short description:
The main challenge EU NET addresses is lower than possible level of European networking of Civil Society Organisations (CSO) active in the lifelong learning, adult education sector.

The project Partners identified the reasons of this situation in the two main areas: Firstly -  the lack of proper/affordable legal and formal solutions supporting networking accessible for the non-profit and/or not-for-profit CSOs. Secondly - the need for more practical examples, more case studies, material for further self-education in the field of European level cooperation and networking of the adult learning CSOs.

The overall aim of the EU NET initiative is to support the European level networking of the Civil Society Organisations active in the lifelong learning sector.

This support would be offered in two forms:

  1. Designing, developing and disseminating the Toolkit on European Project Management for the Civil Society Organisations active in the Lifelong Learning Sector. The toolkit is to be an interactive handbook for self-directed learning and upgrading competences in the field. It would be delivered in two parts:
    Part 1: Project planning and designing.
    Part 2: Realising, monitoring & evaluating the project.
  2. Conducting European level research and legal analysis, and designing and developing the Recommendations for European Networking of the Civil Society Organizations active in the Lifelong Learning Sector – proposing new ways of networking available and affordable for non-profit and not-for profit CSOs.

We shall widely invite to test/review these solutions!
(If interested to take part in the testing/reviewing, please contact the EU NET coordinator: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. We shall inform you directly when the testing begins!)

The EU NET continues and builds on the conclusions from the two preceding projects, initiated and coordinated by FAIE: The “First-time international projects realisers support network”, realized in the period 2018 – 2022 and the “Recommendations for international project managers competences recognition and validation for lifelong learning", realized in the period 2019 – 2022.

EU NET is an element of a long-term strategic plan of the FIRST Network, aiming at delivering sustainable support for international cooperation of the adult learning sector CSOs.

The period of realisation: February 2022 – May 2023.

Short description:
The main challenge the project addresses is little support available for recognition and validation of knowledge, skills and competences of international project managers active in Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in the adult education sector, acquired through formal, non-formal and informal learning.The challenge was named during the realisation of the related project - “The first-time international projects managers support network”.

The overall aim is to support recognition and validation of knowledge, skills and competences of international project managers active in Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in the adult education sector, acquired through formal, non-formal and informal learning.

The direct target group of the project includes the members, workers, co-workers, educators and volunteers of the Third Sector adult education organisations (i.e. Civil Society Organisations, including informal groups, Non-governmental organisations and other non-profit organisations).

The project flow is based on several transnational meetings aiming at good practices and experiences exchange. The project also includes a short-term joint staff training event - Structured Democratic Dialogue Co-laboratory.
As a result there will be recommendations for international project managers competences recognition and validation for lifelong learning developed.
AER-V is an element of a long-term strategic plan of the project core partners, aiming at delivering sustainable support for international cooperation of the adult learning sector CSOs.
