Nordic Thematic Seminar: A closer look on quality in Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps projects


29 January - 1 February 2024 | Quality Hotel Globe, Stockholm, Sweden

The Nordic Thematic Seminar is for beneficiaries that have one or more ongoing Erasmus+ Youth and/or European Solidarity Corps project granted by a Nordic NA. This year's topic is quality. What does a quality project look like, and how do we get there?

The Nordic National Agencies of Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps are happy to once again invite representatives from ongoing projects under the format of the Nordic Thematic Seminar. This year’s edition will take place in Sweden, where we will explore the concept of quality, share good practices and look into the different phases of the project life cycle. The phases of the project life cycle the seminar will focus on are:

1. Planning stage
2. Implementation stage
3. Evaluation and reporting
4. Follow-up and impact

Objective of the seminar:

- To provide you with a better understanding of how to raise the quality of the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps projects within the different stages of the project life cycle (as stated above).
- To explore and exchange good practices regarding quality in the planning, implementation and follow-up of a project.
- To encourage you to learn from and build relationships with other beneficiaries across the Nordic countries. 


The programme wil be a mix of  inputs from external experts, workshops on relevant topics, presentations of some projects, and sessions where you yourselves will share practices and tools from your work and projects. Parts of the programme will be organised with parallel sessions, where you can choose the ones who are most relevant for your organisation. Most sessions will be interactive and many tools can be transferred into your own work.
