Erasmus+ KA2 Handbook on the lump sum funding model 2023

The European Commission has recently published a valuable resource - the informative guide titled ‘Handbook on the Lump Sum Funding Model 2023’.

The European Commission has recently published a valuable resource for organizations participating in the Erasmus+ program, specifically for actions KA210 and KA220 – Cooperation Partnerships and Small Scale Partnerships. The informative guide, titled ‘Handbook on the Lump Sum Funding Model 2023’, serves as a comprehensive guide for organizations to understand and follow the rules and regulations for these two actions throughout the entire project cycle, from preparation and application to management and final reporting.

The guide is particularly useful for organizations interested in Small Scale Partnerships under Key Action 2 (KA2) of the Erasmus+ program. These partnerships aim to widen access to the program for small-scale actors and individuals who are hard to reach in various fields, such as school education, adult education, vocational education and training, youth, and sport. Designed with lower grant amounts, shorter duration, and simpler administrative requirements compared to Cooperation Partnerships, Small Scale Partnerships cater to grassroots organizations, less experienced organizations, and newcomers to the program.

By reducing entry barriers to the Erasmus+ program for organizations with smaller organizational capacity, Small Scale Partnerships encourage the creation and development of transnational networks. They also foster synergies with local, regional, national, and international policies, while offering flexible formats that mix activities with both transnational and national character, albeit with a European dimension. This approach allows organizations to reach out to people with fewer opportunities more effectively.

The ‘Handbook on the Lump Sum Funding Model 2023’ is a must-read for organizations looking to participate in the Erasmus+ program, particularly those focusing on KA210 and KA220 actions. By following the guidelines provided in this informative guide, organizations can ensure they are well-prepared and well-equipped to manage their projects effectively, adhere to the rules and regulations, and ultimately achieve success in their respective initiatives.
