Abstract:The paper reflects in general on the impact based on project outcomes from several Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership projects. The impact criterion is given the most weight at 40% in the final report and yet is the most speculative of the four criteria since it requires project coordinators to predict future effects. More specifically, two recent projects are analysed as cases: The 9 Conversation Project (9C) and the Mastering 9 Conversations project (M9C). The aims of the projects were to develop a practical Entrepreneurship training for refugees and a teacher training package for refugee support centers. Many immigrants have business experiences from their previous life. How can Support Centers build on their experiences and give them support to become entrepreneurs in their new countries with new rules and regulations? Will the 9C and the M9C projects have an impact in a short or a long term? What measures can be taken to increase the impact? Based on our cases we will present some conclusions about the usefulness and impact of the project results for different target groups.
