“Knowing some of the general challenges in advance will help you prepare and grow.”
The chapter gives a comprehensive overview of social service providers’ experiences with EU funding, drawing on surveys from 380 organisations. It reveals challenges such as language complexity, resource constraints, and communication hurdles with managing authorities. A parallel survey with Managing Authorities further emphasises the need for improved training, administrative streamlining, and ongoing support. This MOOC is developed to help navigate these intricacies and equip organisations for successful project implementation.
