Welcome to the ERA-LEARN newsalert!
'Funding & Tender Opportunities Portal' replaces 'Participant Portal'
The European Commission has started the new 'Funding & Tender Opportunities Portal'. The new portal is there to help finding and managing EU grants and procurement contracts. At present, both portals can be used until the 'Participant Portal' will be taken offline by the end of this year. The content is being moved to the new portal successively. So in some cases, it is still necessary to use the 'Participant Portal'.

Evaluation and impact assessment has become an imperative need for all P2Ps. Following a process of consultation with the P2P community, ERA-LEARN has published a 'Guide for P2P impact assessment' drawing on relevant evaluation theories and good practices. This guide is there to establish a common evaluation language / understanding of terms and concepts and to improve understanding of the value and usefulness of impact assessment (IA) activities and results.
