Anna Ochmann, president of ARTeria Foundation, took part in the international seminar “MOV(I)E IT FORWARD!. Dissemination, exploitation and sustainability of KA2 project results” organised by the Polish National Agency Erasmus+ Programme. The participants of the seminar were from 10 European countries and they were first of all Erasmus+ beneficiaries: representatives of on-going projects, as well as those who completed good examples of dissemination and exploitation, representatives of institutions using the results of Erasmus+ projects, and the other stakeholders (e.g. decision makers). Foundation ARTeria presented among others “Global FemArt – Supporting Female Artists and Creatives to Globalise their Business” project.

The Erasmus+ Programme Guide says that: “dissemination and exploitation goals may be to: raise awareness; extend the impact; engage stakeholders and target groups; share solutions and know how; influence policy and practice; develop new partnerships”. So, during these few days of work together we tried to find answers to several questions, for instance:  how can we ensure durability of projects after the project funding has finished?  Which tools can we use?

The main aim of the meeting was: to work together on dissemination and exploitation methods, when doing an Erasmus + project; to work on ways to influence target groups and how to change their lives for the better. The specific goals of the seminar were to exchange experience among participants and get contributions from experts on the subject of sustainability, exploitation and dissemination; to exchange good practices, tools, methods and approaches in sustainability, exploitation and dissemination; to prepare recommendations for future Erasmus+ beneficiaries on efficient ways of exploiting and sustaining results.

The event started on 8th May 2019 and it finished on 11st May 2019.
