Writing an Erasmus+ proposal is most certainly not an easy task. There are so many factors that can influence the course of the proposal, both during the writing period as well as the approval period. But a professional proposal writer, however, is able to write a proposal that will get the granting needed in order to be implemented.
The moment the proposal gets the grant the implementation process starts. And the implementation of the proposal is an entirely different issue. Yes, it is true that the actions that need to be taken for the implementation process have been categorized during the proposal writing. So the person responsible for the implementation knows what they have to do. But things do not stop there.
The methodology that will be followed can be very different from time to time. There is, of course, a basic methodology used to implement and manage an Erasmus+ project. That methodology is able to justify a lot of aspects and parameters as well as the tools needed in order for the project to be implemented successfully.
To perfectly manage an Erasmus+ project, one must be able to understand the nature of the project itself. If this is your first time implementing a project and you were not involved in the writing of the proposal then perhaps you might want to look into seminars and courses that can help you by giving you specific tips, hints and of course, methodologies on how to do it properly.
It is important for you to make sure that you will have the characteristics and the soft skills needed in order to succeed as an Erasmus+ project manager.
Another thing you need to watch out for is the first steps. Usually, at the beginning of the projects, the first steps to be taken are very specific but there are always variations. And the project manager you will be the one responsible to choose whether those variations must apply or not.
Using tools, special methodologies, personal skills and taking action. All of these are part of a good implementation process. Asking for help is also a big part of it. It does not matter if you have been doing this for a long time or if you are new to the ‘’game’’. There is always room for improvement, always room for extra knowledge. Find yourselves the seminars, courses, and webinars that will help become the best project manager for the Erasmus+ projects!
