What is the role of promoters in an EVS project?
Promoters involved in the EVS project perform the following roles and tasks:
- Coordinating Organisation (CO): the CO assumes the role of applicant and carries the financial and administrative responsibility for the entire project vis-à-vis the National or Executive Agency. The CO doesn't necessarily have to be an SO or HO in the project (although it may be). In EVS projects involving only one volunteer, either the SO or the HO is CO. There can be only one CO in an EVS project.
- Sending Organisation (SO): an SO recruits and sends one or more volunteers. There can be one or more SOs in an EVS project.
- Host Organisation (HO): an HO receives one or more volunteers. There can be one ore more HOs in an EVS project.
