EYDR Steering Committee Meeting to approve Key Project Documents

Starting from January 2024, based on the Grant Agreement, and the Work Plan of the project “Youth Participation in Digital Democracy: From Digital Skills to Digital Rights of Youth with Fewer Opportunities in the Western Balkans” (EYDR), the SCiDEV team was in charge of coordinating the work with the task delivery partners ESN AL and CCIS to create and compile the Project Management, Risk, and Financial Plan, the Dissemination Plan and the MEL Plan and Report. These strategic documents were prepared as a guide to show step by step how the management of the project will be conducted, how the project will ensure quality control and assurance, and how the EYDR project will ensure proper dissemination as per the project objective. Both lead partners, together with SCiDEV as the lead, have firstly prepared and reviewed the projects internally, after which all draft documents have been sent to the partners to be reviewed and give feedback on March 12th, before the online steering committee took place on March 19th, 2024, to give their final review and agreement.

The strategic documents have been created and will be used as a guide to support the project coordinator and partners in the efficient and effective administration of all procedures and financial management, ensuring quality control and assurance, as well as a strategy on how dissemination and stakeholder engagement will adhere to the completion of the EYDR project objectives. These documents set the key responsibilities, procedures, and standards, as well as provide specific templates that will be followed and used to implement the EYDR project and all the activities that will be carried out, monitored, and safeguarded during the project.

The Steering Committee Meeting took place online on March 19th, 2024. The meeting was set to present, discuss, and approve strategic documents, including the Project Management and Financial Plan, Dissemination Plan, and MEL Plan. During the online meeting, the SCiDEV team gave a presentation on the Project Management and Financial plan. ESN AL gave a presentation on Dissemination Strategy, and CCIS gave a presentation on the MEL plan and Report. The Steering Committee gave feedback on the documents, and open discussions were held. During the meeting, BCHR and SHARE Foundation also spoke regarding the preparation phase of the Mapping Youth Participation Methodology, which they will create as part of the WP2. Based on the feedback received from the partners, all documents were amended and sent again for final approval.
