The meeting of all the intermediary organizations implementing the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs Programme together with the European Commission (EC) and the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) has been held from 18 to 21 September in Brussels.
The event involved EASME along with all the consortia that are part of the programme. During the meeting the European Agency presented numbers and statistics related to Cycle 7 that will be closed officially this coming January 2017.
The analysis of the results highlighted that the consortium Entrepreneurs’ Mobility VII led by CSCS is the first of the 15 involved in Cycle VII in terms of relations carried out with overall 170 successful business exchanges implemented.
The consortium was the first also in the previous cycles confirming the success of its work and the excellence of its partners coming from 10 different countries including:
- Greece - Asset Tec
- Spain - Ayuntamiento de Santander
- Belgium - Voka
- Sweden - European Minds Sweden
- Czech Republic - HKCR
- Austria - IFA
- Turkey - ATO
- Romania - Fundatia Danis (FDDM)
- Netherlands - CYFI
The event also hosted special sessions addressed to all the members of the network and aimed at discussing relevant topics as, for instance, the quality of the activities carried out or the successful procedures to be replicated. That was a very helpful opportunity to share best practices on to the selection of profiles, the management of networks and students, the analysis of the impact of the activities carried out, the dissemination of content and results and the best ways to transfer all the know-how to new or less experienced organizations.
CSCS is also part of the Cycle 8 already launched in February 2016 and once again it coordinates the consortium Entrepreneurs' Mobility VIII, one of the 17 involved in the programme.
In addition, Centro Studi has signed a Framework Partnership Agreement (FPA) which will be launched in February 2017 with a duration of five years. The Agreement will comprise three cycles that will not overlap.
Within the FPA, CSCS will be again the leader of one of the 10 European consortia in charge to implement the programme.
In sight of these great achievements, CSCS is delighted to thank all the partners for the hard work, support, patience and kind cooperation.
