Ten local and ten overseas partners were ‘in the room’ with 8 applications emerging as a result. All partners had the opportunity to be a partner in all proposals but two representatives ‘teamed up’ and worked together closely over the duration of the CMS although there was also time for all participants to ‘connect’ during the programme.
"It was great to be part of this experience. So good to involve newcomers on Erasmus Plus and to support them in putting amazing ideas in a structure of a project. And to learn more about the local reality and the wonderful work that each one does. Lovely. Thank you all for this experience." Sérgio Gonçalves, Ha Moment, Portugal
“The LID+ Contact Making Seminar was a good opportunity to meet potential partners from Northern Ireland, who work directly on the field and develop a valuable work with youngsters and communities. The process was well defined and well facilitated and allowed the best possible usage of time in order to take concrete steps into developing common international projects.” Anita Silva, TEAM MAIS, Portugal
“80% of the goals fulfilled in terms of quantity and 140% in terms of quality”
Dominik Ringler, Der Jugendring, Germany
"We had around the room a lot of expertise and commitment to engage veterans and new comers to Erasmus+ in new projects to be developed together and submitted by Norther Ireland organisations. The number and quality of the project ideas is high, considering the time being, the obstacles for Northern Ireland practitioners to engage in projects (basically low or none knowledge of the Programme) seems overcome and we, international partners, got a precious insight of social and youth realities of Northern Ireland. Thank you for this!" Davide Tonon, Nexes, Spain
