“KA210 PIF: How to prepare your PIF for 2021-2027 program” article informs colleagues of the new form. So, we will focus on changes to the questions and space limit in participating organisations. Above all, to help your applicant, you need to create a new PIF for the KA210 Small Scale Partnership projects. Likewise, L4Y’s (Check the second one, “PIF for KA210 Small Scale Projects.”) Space for each question is 1000K, and it is hard for an applicant to cut your ordinary PIF to shorten them. Besides, it is good to prepare a new PIF for the KA210 projects to ease the applicant’s job. Moreover, it is a plus point for you to show how serious a partner you are.

KA210 Small Scale Partnership Projects
The information for a new type of project.
Small-scale Partnerships are designed to widen access to the program to small-scale actors and individuals who are hard to reach in the fields of school education, adult education, vocational education and training, youth and sport.Program Guide Page 192;
With lower grant amounts awarded to organizations, shorter duration, and simpler administrative requirements compared to the Cooperation Partnerships.
This action aims at reaching out to grassroots organizations, less experienced organizations, and newcomers to the Programme. Reducing entry barriers to the program for organizations with smaller organizational capacity. This action will also support flexible formats.
– mixing activities with transnational and national character although with a European dimension.
– allowing organizations to have more means to reach out to people with fewer opportunities.
Small-scale Partnerships can also contribute to the creation and development of transnational networks and to fostering synergies with, and between, local, regional, national and international policies.
KA210 PIF: Objectives of the action
OBJECTIVES OF THE ACTIONProgram Guide Page 192;
– Attract and widen access for newcomers, less experienced organizations, and small-scale actors to the
program. These partnerships should act as the first step for organizations into cooperation at the European level.
– Support the inclusion of target groups with fewer opportunities
– Support active European citizenship and bring the European dimension to the local level
In addition, the main objectives of Cooperation Partnerships also apply to Small-sсale Partnerships, proportionally to
the scope and volume of each project:
– Increasing quality in the work and practices of the organizations and institutions involved, opening up to
new actors not naturally included within one sector;
– Building capacity of organizations to work transnationally and across sectors;
– Addressing common needs and priorities in the fields of education, training, youth, and sport;
– Enabling transformation and change (at individual, organizational or sectoral level), leading to improvements,
in proportion to the context of each organization;
As a result, If you are a professional organisation, do not answer KA210 Call For Partners. Your existence will harden to get the grant, as explained in the objectives above.
A new question comes with the 2021-2027 program for KA210 PIF. Suppose you are a non-profit organisation. They ask Main Sector. Please add this to your PIF and the other questions you see in the picture below.

However, in the previous form, all fields have 5000 character space. But, the KA210 form is limited to 1000 characters. Therefore, It would be best to shorten it and check L4Y’s KA220 PIF and KA210 PIF.

Legal Representative and Contact Person
In short, the main change is that there should be two different people, and the form does not accept the same e-mail addresses. As a result, you should provide two separate e-mails, one for each. However, the same phone number is not a problem.
In conclusion, you need to help applicants be counted as a serious organisation. Above all, start an excellent communication by preparing your PIF for KA210 projects.
