The OpenSpace is a project incubation event that gives participants the opportunity to find out more about EU funding opportunities, discuss their own project ideas with colleagues from across Europe, and plan the next steps for submitting and managing project applications. The lively and creative environment also offers multiple networking and best-practice sharing opportunities among higher education staff working on EU projects.
The OpenSpace is divided in two tracks. The first track is for individuals who have project ideas and aim at creating a strong EU Erasmus+ project proposal and finding partners. The second track is for already existing consortia who want to meet with their partners to finalise project proposals and engage in peer-review with other consortia.
