Associated partners are those that have formerly endorsed Circle U. and its mission and are listed in the Circle U.’s Erasmus+ grant application to the European Commission (Proposal number 101004062). There are currently 34 Associated Partners but other associated partners may be invited to join in the future upon decision of the General Assembly. Honorary Partners have no formal link to Circle U. but are natural persons or legal entities that are invited to the General Assembly due to their potential strategic contribution.
Role and responsibilities
Associated partners are expected to act at both strategic and project levels. Associated partners are key to fulfil Circle U.’s vision. They are given the possibility to advise the General Assembly on matters relevant to their roles in the alliance. They also play an active role in the implementation of activities foreseen in project collaborations. Honorary partners may be invited to share their expertise as advisers to the General Assembly.
