Short-term projects for mobility of pupils and staff

These projects provide applicants with an opportunity to organise various mobility activities over a period of six to eighteen months. Short-term projects are the best choice for organisations applying for Erasmus+ for the first time, or for those that wish to organise only a limited number of activities. Within a period of any five consecutive call years, organisations may receive a maximum of three grants for short-term projects in the field of school education.

Accredited projects for mobility of pupils and staff

These projects are open ONLY to organisations holding an Erasmus accreditation in the field of adult education. This special funding strand allows accredited organisations to regularly receive funding for mobility activities that contribute to the gradual implementation of their Erasmus Plan.
