Presented by Dr Sophie Ball, Erasmus+ Development Officer, the purpose of this series of workshops is to prepare and support staff at DCU to:

  • submit successful funding applications within the Erasmus+ programme;
  • leverage the benefits of Erasmus+ projects, partnerships and activities.

In this first workshop, a Beginner's Guide to Erasmus+, we will start with the basics, examining the objectives and priorities of the Erasmus+ programme, and exploring the different types of projects within the Erasmus+ Calls, and how, when, and with whom, you might develop an application. 

Throughout the series, we will invite DCU staff to describe their experiences of participation in  Erasmus+ projects.  At this first workshop, Dr Trudy Corrigan, from the School of Policy and Practice, will talk about her involvement in an E+ Strategic Partnership project:  SmartyourHome - How to make seniors' homes smarter.

Later in the year, external experts will share regional, national, and international perspectives, presenting us with insights into the benefits that Erasmus+ projects bring to PIs, participants, and target groups.  The 2022 Call for Applications will be discussed as soon as it is released.
