Projects under the Teams up! programme can receive funding from the BMZ. The funding takes the form of non-repayable grants covering part of the required funds (up to 75% of the overall expenditure). “Overall project expenditure” means all project-related, verifiable expenses in Germany and the partner country incurred for the purpose set out in the agreement in the preparation, implementation and follow-up phases.
The funding is provided on the basis of an agreement under private law between
- Engagement Global gGmbH (grant donor),
- the German project partner (grant recipient) and
- the exchange project partner (application partner).
In addition to the expenses incurred during the two exchange visits,
- expenditure on suitable educational support,
- preparation and follow-up, PR work and
- documentation of the project
can be funded through Teams up!. In line with the principle of partnership, expenditure should be balanced between the project partners.
In individual cases, funding for special costs can be provided, for example for young persons with an impairment (funding for additional transport costs and accessible infrastructure) or where more intensive educational measures are required.
All eligible expense items can be found in the notes on how to complete the expenditure and financing plan.
