This Unit focuses specifically on managing and maintaining the relationship between EMA and ESAA,, and between EMA and any other third parties that participate in joint projects. It provides guidance and support to EMA members to propose, develop, and successfully carry out the projects backed by the Association. The PSU works closely with project managers and team members to identify and resolve any issues or challenges that may arise during the project. It is also responsible for communicating with stakeholders and ensuring that project goals and objectives are aligned with the mission and visions of EMA. Overall, the PSU plays a crucial role in ensuring the success of projects by providing the necessary support and guidance to project teams.

 

The PSU has two other contact points, namely the Project Partner Coordinator and the Project Dissemination Coordinator.

 

The Project Partner Coordinator provides support for project timeline communication with partners, developing new project partnerships, and stakeholder/partner engagement. The coordinator is also responsible for communications with internal and external partners to develop relationships that increase the association’s reach and make new project partnerships.

 

The current project partner coordinators are Caroline Mainik and Rashi Maithul and can be reached at projectsupport@em-a.eu.

 

The Project Dissemination Coordinator provides support for project communication, dissemination, and stakeholder/partner engagement activities. The coordinator is also responsible for communicating projects at various stages and other PSU activities with the target audience to increase its reach and impact.

The current project dissemination coordinator is Zhanna Fatalova, who can be reached at project_disseminator@em-a.eu

 

The unit has successfully obtained various EU-funded projects, mainly Erasmus+ Key Action 1 and Key Action 2. EMA acts as project coordinator or leads diverse work packages (WPs) related to network expertise, community/stakeholder mapping, communication and dissemination, etc.

We would be glad to discuss further possibilities of collaboration in project proposals under the Erasmus+ programme.  ​
