SPI Inclusion matchmaking – Find European partners for inclusion Projects. The aim of the event is to encourage and support inclusive projects in the framework of Erasmus+ YiA and the European Solidarity Corps programme.
Inclusion projects and players in their home countries are well connected. However, European inclusion networking across borders is still a challenge.
This partnership-building activity tackles this challenges by providing a European networking opportunity for professionals dealing with inclusion and those who are looking for partners in EU projects about inclusion.
For instance, professionals focussing on youth with special needs (disability, health challenges) will get the chance to network and explore inclusion opportunities in the EU programmes Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps. Both programmes offer tools for empowering and supporting participation as well as social integration of young people.
The SPI Inclusion matchmaking will be an open space for getting to know other inclusion professionals’ work and interests, for exploring together potential ideas for common projects, for building quality partnerships and for preparing EU programme grant applications. Specifically, this partnership-building activity will be an opportunity to find partners and partner organisations for further cooperation. Overall, this activity wants to encourage and support inclusive projects in the framework of the EU programmes Erasmus+ YOUTH IN ACTION and the European Solidarity Corps.
