How to apply

Open project proposals

   

  • A team of four experts (plus optional self-funded associate partners) represented by a prospective coordinator puts forward a project proposal based on the rationale and themes of the Call for submissions. The submission template is provided by the ECML.
  • The proposal includes details of all team members, indicating their role within the team (for details click here):
    • project coordinator (key responsibility for a project);
    • project website correspondent (team member with responsibility to continuously update the project website);
    • second language correspondent of the project (team member ensuring availability of key project documents in the second language of the project);
    • communications person (team member mediating the project’s work to a target group, including through the use of social media).
  • The proposal does not duplicate but rather complements the project descriptions presented under closed project proposals.
  • The proposal will indicate whether the primary focus is on development work or on mediation.
  • The selection of projects will be based on the selection criteria of the Call for submissions. They relate to the relevance to national priorities in ECML member states, the quality of the proposal itself and the alignment with the ECML programme rationale. 

Closed project proposals

   

  • An individual expert sends an application in response to one or more of the project descriptions under closed project proposals. In the case of project “Towards a Common European Framework of Reference for language teachers”, applications may be from individuals OR from teams/consortia. The application form is provided by the ECML.
  • As with open project proposals, the expert indicates in which one of the following roles he/she wishes to contribute to project work:
    • as project coordinator (key responsibility for a project);
    • as project website correspondent (team member with responsibility to continuously update the project website);
    • as second language correspondent of the project (team member ensuring availability of key project documents in the second language of the project);
    • as communications person (team member mediating the project’s work to a target group).
  • If the expert wishes to assume the role of project coordinator, he/she is requested to further develop the basic project outline provided by the ECML by providing a full project description.
  • An applicant will be selected by the ECML Governing Board as coordinator for each project. Following this process the coordinator will be invited to determine the composition of the project team in consultation with the ECML on the basis of all applications received for the respective project through the Call for closed project proposal.
  • The selection criteria for coordinators will focus on the qualifications of the applicant and on the project description submitted.

Cooperation with additional partners is welcome for all projects. The ECML encourages the co-funding of projects through national or international institutions and associations where project content and aims are complementary with existing initiatives or planned activities. This applies in particular to the closed project proposal “Towards a Common European Framework of Reference for Language Teachers”.
