In this Erasmus+ project section you should discuss how your Erasmus+ project will / may have an impact on the following:
✓ Whole organisation / institution,
✓ The Local Community,
✓ Wider School Network,
✓ Contribute to Erasmus+ Programme and European Union objectives.
You should explain the expected outcomes for participants; resulting from their mobility, planned learning and active involvement and participation in the project. Examples could include:
✓ improved knowledge,
✓ newly acquired or developed skills,
✓ changes in attitude or behaviour.
These outcomes may have a further impact on their employment status, role delivery, and ability to access further education, wellbeing or lifestyle. Please note the most relevant and realistic outcomes for your project.
Aside from the impact on individuals, you should discuss the impact you expect the project to have on your school(s). This could take many forms – perhaps changes in management structure, in curriculum content, in European links, in having a more engaged staff… You should include an estimate in terms of quantity – how many people the organisation intends to reach through implementing the project.
2. Dissemination of projects’ results
The Erasmus+ programme has a special interest in dissemination. Your application should have a plan in place to share the outcomes of your project. A good dissemination plan will share the concrete results of the project; not just inform people that the project has taken place. An Erasmus+ project’s results could be shared widely at an institutional, local and European level. No two dissemination plans will be the same. What is important is that your dissemination plan is realistic and relevant to the size and scope of the project that you plan to deliver.
What dissemination activities you carry out are up to you. Some of the most common are:
✓ conferences and workshops;
✓ creating manuals, booklets or newsletters;
✓ creating press releases and giving these to local media;
✓ creating new courses or training material;
✓ creating web pages.
It should be clear how you will raise awareness, share concepts or solutions, policy or practice through these dissemination activities. For more information on dissemination, please read “Annex II – dissemination and exploitation of results – A practical guide for beneficiaries” in the Programme Guide.
You are expected to include a final evaluation of the project, in which you – or your institution – will be able to assess whether (or to what extent) the project has been a success. This evaluation should highlight the learning outcomes of all involved. We’d also encourage evaluation before and during the activity, as well as the final evaluation. This helps with establishing baselines (and therefore seeing what has improved) and fine-tuning the project as it goes.
