A project is a temporary endeavor designed to produce a unique product, service or result with a defined beginning and end (usually time-constrained, and often constrained by funding or staffing) undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value. The temporary nature of projects stands in contrast with business as usual (or operations), which are repetitive, permanent, or semi-permanent functional activities to produce products or services. In practice, the management of such distinct production approaches requires the development of distinct technical skills and management strategies.
Together with our partners, so far for this year BrainLog has developed and participates as a partner in approx. 30 European Transnational Strategic Partnership project applications.
Strategic Partnerships are transnational projects designed to develop and share innovative practices and promote cooperation, peer learning, and exchanges of experiences in the fields of education, training, and youth.
Overall, strategic partnerships aim to address horizontal priorities as well as field specific priorities in the areas of:
• Higher education
• Vocational education and training
• School education
• Adult education, and
Furthermore, Strategic Partnerships provide opportunities for a wide variety of public, private, and non-governmental organisations to implement a broad range of activities including, for example:
• Strengthening cooperation and networking between organisations,
• Promoting the development, testing, and implementation of innovative practices,
• Promoting the recognition and validation of knowledge, skills, and competences,
• Promoting cooperation between regional authorities to develop new systems for education, physical activity,training, and youth,
• Supporting learners with disabilities and special needs and ease their transition to the labour market,
• Supporting education and training professionals to promote equity, diversity, and inclusion in learning,
• Promoting integration of newly arrived migrants and raising awareness about the refugee crisis in Europe
• Promoting entrepreneurship and active citizenship among young people.
Strategic Partnerships can be of different sizes and conduct different activities depending on the objective of the project, the organisations involved, the expected impact, and other elements.
Within the scope of the project's objectives, there are also opportunities for pupils, students, learners, and staff to learn, be trained, or to teach abroad, insofar as these transnational teaching, training and learning activities contribute to the achievement of the project's objective.
