Workshop at FEANTSA European conference

On may 18 Generativity project has been presented at the FEANTSA European conference in Gdansk (PL). Paolo Brusa lead the participants to the discovering of the basic principles of project cycle management. The Project Cycle Management is an approach to manage multiple projects or programs and to improve the quality of projects by learning from one project and applying the lessons in the following ones. To get familiar with its principles, the participants were asked to remember their younger time, and to work in sub-group to answer the question “how to make a party when you were 16?”. Participants were guided to the creation of a fictitious planning which passed through all the pcm phases: definition of the purposes for the party (background analysis and programming); invitation (creation of the partnership and identification); planning (preparation and formulation); cost evaluation (cost/benefit analysis, financing and budgeting); the party itself (implementation); evaluation of the impact after a given period (evaluation).

Next step was the presentation of the project in all its major aspects, including the ict platform already available, the training modules which will soon tested in Greece, the possibilities and facilities offered to the web-users, and the indication on how to collaborate and contact the project partners.

Generativity workshop at FEANTSA European conference

During the forthcoming FEANTSA European conference that will take place in Gdansk (PL) on 18-19-20 May 2017, Paolo Brusa from Diciannove will conduct a workshop to present the project and to specifically start to be generative with the Eu participating audience. Driving from the presentation of the forthcoming available training modules on PCM, the participant will participate to a drawing of a micro-project.

new utilities available on the platform

this platform is now linked with the main sources of information concerning to European calls and project management opportunities. To receive a constant and on-time updates on the forthcoming calls and on other relevant information related to the Commission communications around Eu funds opportunities, you just has to register on the project contacts links on top right of the page “how to collaborate and get infos about Generativity

working on iO1

the project keeps on its working program. The platform you are reading, which constitutes the iO1 (first intellectual output) is on the way to get its complete functionality. In its progressive stages, this platform allows professionals, staff and users from all around Europe to familiarize with the principle of Project Cycle Management (PCM); to access the training modules on PCM (expected by June 2017) and subsequently the tutorials (expected by fall 2017). Meanwhile other resources will be added, such as the bibliography on PCM. 

KoM in Torino

the project Generativity starts with a two days steering meeting between the partner organization in Torino. The two working days agenda is condensed, as the partners are re-designing the program of the project in order to face the impact of the cuts but still assuring a successful implementation. General agreements and distribution of tasks between partners and across the next 23 months have been on the discussion agenda as well.

Ready for generativity

“Generativity: manage it!” is a project that responds to some of the questions that arise in most of the third sector organizations: the need to acquire, develop & implement skills and competences on Project Cycle Management. The term was coined in 1950 by Erik Erikson to denote a concern for establishing and guiding: in Erikson’s “Stages of Psychosocial Development”, generativity is defined as a struggle against stagnation that ascends during adulthood, when a process of guidance left the place for a process of guiding the next generations. The partners of the project share their competences and skills to respond to such needs and to foster new generatively. “Generativity: manage it!” consists of an online platform (IO1); five training modules (IO2), which will be tested during a 5 days short term training staff event (LTTA); the online tutorials on PCM (IO3); a dedicated bibliography on PCM.
