Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs: the European Exchange Programme for Entrepreneurs
Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs consists of a cross-border exchange aimed at giving the opportunity to potential and newly established entrepreneurs to shadow an experienced entrepreneur in another European country.
The European Union partially finance the stay. The Programme supports New Entrepreneurs in gaining entrepreneurial competencies: thus the experience will contribute to the success and innovation of small and medium-sized companies in Europe.
The Host Entrepreneurs indeed benefit from new and fresh ideas to develop in their business and they have the chance to enlarge their market abroad.
The New Entrepreneur receives a financial support. It contributes to travel and subsistence costs during the staying abroad; the IO (Intermediary Organisation) calculates the financial support on the basis of the monthly lump sum for the chosen country.
The role of CSCS
CSCS is officially appointed by the European Commission as a Lead Intermediary Organisation of the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs network: CSCS coordinates the EM consortium that is one of the most active performers in the EYE programme.
With a solid network of over 100 intermediary organisations across EU member states and beyond, CSCS supports entrepreneurs in establishing business partnerships and developing strategic project-related activities.
Who can participate?
- New Entrepreneurs who are planning or have already started (within the last three years) their own business
- Experienced Entrepreneurs who own or manage a Small-Medium Sized Company in one of the Participating Countries.
Whether you are a new or highly experienced entrepreneur, the programme can offer strong added value to your business: possible benefits include exchange of knowledge and experience, networking opportunities across Europe, new commercial relations or markets abroad.
