SCiDEV kicks off new Erasmus+ Project on Youth Participation in Digital Democracy

On November 2, 2023, SCiDEV as the lead of the project “Youth Participation in Digital Democracy: From Digital Skills to Digital Rights of Youth with Fewer Opportunities in the Western Balkans” (EYDR), funded by the Erasmus+ Capacity Building in the Field of Youth Programme, organized the 1st preparatory online meeting with all partners of the project to present the key activities of the project, budget, and discuss next steps of implementation.

The EYDR Kick Off Meeting commenced by SCiDEV’s Executive Director, Mrs. Blerjana Bino, with her opening remarks and purpose of the meeting.  Following her opening remarks, the floor was given to all partners to present themselves and their affiliation to their organization/institution and the project. After the introduction of the partners, Mrs. Bino provided an overview of the project aim and specific objectives. She highlighted the milestones and deliverables for the full implementation period of the EYDR project.  Mrs. Bino explained the grant agreement signed by all partners, and focused on financial regulations, how the distribution of funds will be done, the reports and which times they need to be ready for the donor.

The meeting ended with positive feedback. All partners present voted on which communication channels they would like to use going forward, and an agreement was reached. The meeting overall had productive discussion, thus proving commitment of the partners and paving the collaborative way for EYDR project implementation.

The successful conclusion of this preparatory meeting reacquainted all partners with the project’s deliverables and their respective roles. The project team is now well-informed about the upcoming steps for initiating project implementation.
