Stage 2 Workshops, September 2023

In September 2023, three events were hosted as part of the Darwin Plus Stage 2 workshop, for Round 12 applicants that had been successfully invited through to Stage 2.

Webinar – Frequently Asked Questions

On 8th September, we hosted a webinar for applicants under Round 12 of Darwin Plus that were invited through to Stage 2. This webinar introduced Stage 2 applicants to some of the frequently asked questions and common issues relating to eligibility, finance, Flexi-Grant, gender and safeguarding requirements.

Workshop Session – Monitoring and Evaluation

On 12th September, we hosted an interactive Monitoring and Evaluation workshop for Stage 2 applicants. This session focused on M&E, logframes and Standard Indicators. It involved some presentations combined with interactive practical sessions to support applicants in writing Stage 2 application. It covered the use of project design tools and methods to ensure that logframes are as robust as possible through the inclusion of “SMART” indicators and appropriate means of verification.
