The purpose of this tender is to select an entity – the Support Office – that will coordinate and support the activities of the European Partnerships and Intermediary Organisations of the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs Programme.
The Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs Programme (http://www.erasmus-entrepreneurs.eu/) is a cross-border exchange programme which gives new or aspiring entrepreneurs the chance to learn from experienced entrepreneurs running small businesses in other European countries. The exchange of experience takes place during a stay of one to six months with the experienced entrepreneur. This allows the new entrepreneur to acquire the skills needed to run a small firm. At the same time, the host entrepreneur benefits from the new entrepreneur's knowledge and input and gets the opportunity to familiarise himself with other European markets.
The purpose of this tender is to select an entity – the Support Office – that will coordinate and support the activities of the European Partnerships and Intermediary Organisations of the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs Programme. The Support Office should ensure overall coherence and consistency of the work undertaken by European Partnerships. Any private or public entity active in the field of business support, consulting, public affairs and public relations and with experience and knowledge on EU affairs can participate in this tender.
The key role of the Support Office is to assist and support the European Commission in the management of the Programme and to contribute to promotion and communication activities. Overall, the Support Office should contribute significantly to the pan-European dimension of the mobility scheme and be able to cover all participating countries.
