Call for proposals COS-WP2014-4-05 - Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs

The aim of this call is to expand and strengthen the existing network of Intermediary Organisations which act as local contact points for newly established entrepreneurs as well as experienced entrepreneurs in the participating countries. Intermediary Organisations (IOs) will be selected to implement the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme at local level.

They will, in particular, recruit and assist the entrepreneurs who will benefit from 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 be required to cooperate with all other organisations and authorities involved in the mobility programme, enabling new entrepreneurs to take part in mobility activities as agreed. They will receive support from the existing Support Office (SO), which helps with the coordination and management of the programme across Participating Countries.

These organisations will help new entrepreneurs from Participating Countries enrich their experience, deepen their knowledge and expand their network by spending periods in enterprises run by experienced entrepreneurs in other Participating Countries. 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.
