Applying for a grant
With the new Erasmus+ programme from 2021 there are two options to participate in a mobility project:
- Your organisation applies for an accreditation: Accreditation is expected to become the standard access for organisations. Instead of funding individual projects, interested organisations apply once for accreditation for Key Action 1 and can then submit ongoing annual requests for funding. The accreditation is unlimited in time and provides continuous access to funding for learning mobility. The accreditation is seen like an Erasmus membership.
- You plan a short-term mobility project: In the future, Short-term Projects should give the opportunity to participate in the Erasmus program in project form. Specific restrictions will be formulated with regard to the duration of the projects, the number of participants and the maximum budget. In addition, it will only be possible for an institution to apply for two short-term projects within five years.
Note: The EU Commission has not yet issued an official announcement on the Short-term Projects. All information is therefore subject to change.
Before starting with an application:
Have a look at the programme guide and the website of your National Agency. Make sure that the organisation you represent or work for is eligible to apply for funding.
Check the next deadline and the technical requirements for the electronic application and submission.
Make sure that your management supports your plans and that your organisation only applies for one project (except mobility consortia).
Find out your organisation ID (OID) or if you are new in this programme, register your organisation.
