Project Concept Template

What is a Project Concept and what is its role?

The Project Concept is a form of a document created within the project owner’s organization with the purpose to support the initiation of the project.

It helps outlining an organization’s background; the project’s context & needs; the project’s objectives, expected results and resources/ activities/ plans required.

Is it compulsory?

No, it is not. However, from our perspective, we highly recommend making a project concept before, or after writing a project proposal. As it will give you an overview of your project’s main points, so you can double-check them and give necessary adjustments

What are the Project Concept’s requirements?

According to the Erasmus Programme Guide 2020, some specific requirements for a project plan are:

  • It should be flexible enough to allow target groups and other stakeholders to be involved during the different stages of the project. This will help them keep track of the project remains on track whenever they want to.
  • If the project plan is for training, teaching or learning activities then these criteria need to be consider:
  • The quality of practical arrangements, management and support modalities in learning, teaching and training activities;
  • The extent to which these activities are appropriate to the project’s aims and involve the appropriate number of participants;
  • The quality of arrangements for the recognition and validation of participants’ learning outcomes, in line with European transparency and recognition tools and principles.
