Objective One’s full website goes on lineComprehensive details of the Objective One programme – how it works and news about projects – are now available online following the launch this week of the programme’s new website.
The full site – which replaces a pilot version set up earlier this year – was warmly endorsed by Professor Andrew Errington, a member of the programme’s Strategic Development Group.
He said: “This new site will be an enormous asset for anyone who wants to find out about Objective One, whether they’re looking for general background information or have specific issues to explore.
“I would advise anyone thinking about how they can get involved with Objective One to make looking at this site their top priority.
“Whether you are in business, involved with a community group or interested in some other aspect of Objective One, you will find a lot of useful information – and explanations of what it all means – on this website.”
Professor Errington, who is research professor in rural development at Plymouth University, added: “I was delighted to explore the new site and found it very simple to use. There is so much in the way of facts, advice and useful contact information there but the site is also extremely easy to find your way round.”
The launch of the extensive new site – www.objectiveone.com – follows the announcement at the start of this week of the names of the first four projects to be approved for Objective One funding.
The full website – which can be accessed at the same address as the pilot site – contains a wide range of useful information, both general and for specific sectors, presented in a user-friendly manner that avoids jargon.
A key feature of the www.objectiveone.com website is a detailed step-by-step guide to the whole programme that takes users through from developing ideas for projects all the way to the appraisal process for applications submitted for funding.
Another important aspect of the site is its interactive inquiry form. Users can enter a question or an outline for a project idea and it will be forwarded through to the Government Office of the South West for an expert adviser to look at and respond to.
