In order to share the results of the project beyond the partners many different stakeholders and potential multiplier or users will be invited including national, regional, local institutions; other teachers, schools and organizations; external partners.

Dissemination of Erasmus+ Project Results on a Local and International Level 

 Dissemination of Erasmus+ projects information always begins with the institution or organisation participating in the project.  The disseminiation information is then shared at a local and international level, so that the results achieved during the project can be used by others.  

 On an international level, this means promoting the project and its activities by all the partners involved in the Erasmus+ project.  It’s aimed at the institution’s individiaul company but stretches to the European Union too. This is why the dissemination stage is critical. 

 Locally, the dissemination of information is carried out at state, city or municipality level.  It’s usually the area where the Erasmus+ project co-ordinator or partner is situated. It’s also adapted to the environment’s specifics, this could include different types of promotion and different partners. 


Planning the Dissemination of Information 

 It is important to develop a solid plan for disseminating information and using project results. It’s also best to plan these types of activities at the beginning of the Erasmus+ project, possibly during the project and at the implementation stage too, following the end of the project. Furthermore, it’s crucial to determine what needs to be promoted and how it will be done.  Erasmus+ project results should be concrete and clearly measurable (e.g. number of events held, curriculum changes, equipment purchased etc.), or less measurable but still significant (eg. acquisition of new skills, knowledge and competencies etc.). The promotion of results should be adjusted to these criteria. 


Identify Your Target Group 

 Identifying the target group is an integral part of successful promotion. The promotion of your Erasmus+ project and its outcomes will not be done in exactly the same way to colleagues from similar institutions, decision makers, media and project beneficiaries.  That’s why the method of promotion and dissemination should always be adapted to each selected target group. 

 For the Erasmus+ programme, a multiplier event is an event organised in order to share the intellectual results of a project with a large audience. Multiplier events are national and transnational conferences, seminars and other events organised with the purpose of disseminating the intellectual outputs produced by the project. The costs incurred in the organisation of multiplier events can be financially supported.  

 The goal of multiplier events is to foster the participation of stakeholders and communities in a process of exchange of experience and co-creation of knowledge gained since the early stage of the Erasmus+ project.  The events should enhance debate on the project’s approach in developing key competencies, in the short and long term, the issues of Europeanity and planetarity to promote environmental, social and economic sustainability.  

 The multiplier event acts both as a closing event for the project and as a presentation of the project results and future work to the public too. The partners of the Erasmus+ project will share their experiences and results, with a special focus on  tools that connect students and supervisors across the EU. 


Who Participates in Multiplier Events 

 Only subjects unrelated to the co-ordinating body and beneficiaries partcipate in these events. You can decide, for example, to host very small events, carefully selecting the participants, in order to only have people really interested in the topic and who are able to bring the results of the Erasmus+ projects to local policies.  

 The events (held live or online), are necessary to present the Erasmus+ project and its outcomes, to facilitate debate on new strategies and new curricula in training as a tool for continuity. They are also used to elaborate a co-operation plan for the further exploitation of the project outcomes.
