dedicated to your growth
Our program is mainly focused on growth opportunities provided through European funding, securing that the most critical obstacles to a higher level of participation are overcome:
- Lack of expertise or knowledge in explicit form, including lack of readily available clear understanding of the local language, lack of documentation, or insufficient documentation, as well as difficulty in finding peers in relevant areas to help when a problem arises that needs to be solved. It also means a lack of systematic handling of knowledge, where handling means gathering, evaluating, structuring, and disseminating knowledge shared among peers and across projects.
- Reluctance to participate by being intimidated by the bureaucratic processes involved in proposal preparation and project reporting. Even though the experience is often lacking, most NGOs or SMEs cannot afford to learn only from their own mistakes.
- Need for the change in business culture – currently, the prevalent business culture is one of exclusion, preventing NGOs or SMEs from realising the benefits of collaboration within an international consortium of partners.
