Funding The development of a viable training project demands substantial investment of resources. In order to create a solid base of financial resources we plan to diversify our funding portfolio. We will primarily seek external funding from European Union’s dedicated YOUTH Programme on European training courses. Our grant application will be submitted on the February 1st deadline. Furthermore, we will approach willing corporate sponsors and institutions. A part of the total budget will be covered from own funds, from the participation fees. Funding from European Union’s YOUTH Programme – SubAction 4.1 for EGEA can also be directed towards the pilot Training Event.
Potential Trainers One of the most important determinants for the success of the pilot Training Event is the selection of dexterous trainers that can customize their educational approaches into EGEA’s specific context. We highly value EGEA’s own informal facilitators that can contribute equally and assist professional trainers in the educational process. Therefore, we foresee a balanced representation of external and in-house trainers. Potential trainers will be shortlisted by late January 2010. 25
