Four SOS Group structures have been selected by the Erasmus+ programme!

This October, four organisations of the GROUPE SOS have obtained funding from the Erasmus+ programme in order to implement their project in partnership with different European organisations:

-Acta Vista: as lead partner for the « Fostering heritage safeguarding and social inclusion in Europe » project, this association wishes to lead a strategic partnership to make the renovation of European heritage a lever for professional, social and environmental inclusion. The project’s ambition is the exchange of good practices through the joint design of a training of trainers course in partnership with organisations based in Belgium, Spain, Greece and Croatia.

-PULSE: leader of a consortium gathering five partners, the project « E4NEETS » aims to fight against the exclusion of young adults by developing innovative training tools for the teams of support organisations working with NEETs, to enable them acquiring entrepreneurial skills.This project is carried out in partnership with organisations located in Serbia, Spain and Northern Macedonia. 

-H7: this accelerator wants to set up a cooperation network to work on different identified issues and facilitate collaborations between startups across Europe with the project « Grow Impact For Tech ». The objective is to help young European technology companies emerge while jointly supporting growth and societal impact for a responsible and ethical European entrepreneurship. H7 is conducting this project in partnership with organisations located in Belgium.

-Artemis-ASSFAM :  With the #ReEngagedEU project, the objective is to equip and encourage the development of the skills of professionals accompanying NEETs, in order to set up remobilisation courses through audiovisual and Media and Information Education (MIE). For this purpose, a remobilisation pathway through audiovisuals will be created and playful activities will be organised to develop the softskills of young NEETs. Organisations based in Italy, Belgium and Spain are in partnership with Artemis-ASSFAM to develop this project.

Open-up to Europe thanks to the Erasmus+ accreditation !

EU’s Erasmus+ programme is becoming more accessible and easier to implement, thanks to new tools that facilitate the application process for organizations. Four SOS GROUP structures have seized this opportunity and obtained an Erasmus+ accreditation, a simpler way to access European mobility activities.

The Erasmus+ Accreditation: an easier gateway to Erasmus+ mobility 

For more than 30 years, the Erasmus program has offered the possibility to European students, apprentices, trainers, job seekers and young graduates to go abroad and do travel and study trips throughout Europe.  

Since 2021, the Erasmus+ program has become even more open and accessible thanks to the Erasmus+ Accreditation, a simplified way to apply for grants from the Erasmus program. Once accredited, organizations can ask mobility grants during seven years (2021-2027) without having to apply for a mobility grant each year. That gives the possibility to awarded candidates to travel in Europe and around the world, in order to open up to cross-border exchanges, observe new practices, carry out training periods and cooperate between professionals of the same sector in foreign countries. 

The Erasmus+ Accreditation shows the European Union’s political will to open mobility opportunities to a larger number of participants and a wider range of organizations.   

Thanks to the Erasmus+ accreditation, four SOS GROUP organizations will have access to European mobility opportunities 

In October 2020, four SOS GROUP organizations obtained the Erasmus+ accreditation. 

Plateforme-i, Acta Vista, Pulse and Silver Fourchette now have the possibility to send their staff and beneficiaries on training and professional trips throughout Europe between 2021 and 2027.  

Focus on the accredited organizations: 

Plateforme-i implements programs for inclusion in employment, in order to offer support to young people who are struggling to enter the professional world. Through European exchanges, Plateforme-i aims to improve social inclusion by spreading its programs beyond the Paris region. 

Acta Vista is a non-profit organization specialized in professional integration and training through the preservation of endangered historical heritage sites. Acta Vista’s staff and trainees will discover complementary training methods in the field of heritage renovation, thanks to European mobility opportunities. 

Silver Fourchette is a program that promotes a balanced and environmentally friendly diet for seniors. By opening-up to Europe, Silver Fourchette’s teams will improve the educational quality of their content and create new pedagogical teaching methods. 

Pulse is a non-profit organization that aims to create pathways towards entrepreneurship as a lever for inclusive and sustainable development, in Africa and Europe. By sending its staff abroad, Pulse will adapt its expertise to the international context and increase the skills of its teams.  

The four organizations will therefore discover new working methods and benefit from cooperation between European partners.  

Save the date!  

Erasmus+ Accreditation next application deadline is 19 October at 12:00 p.m.
