Erasmus Accreditation

What is Erasmus Accreditation? 

The Erasmus+ programme comes to the end of its current programme cycle in 2020. The successor programme will run from 2021 to 2027, and aims to be more inclusive, accessible and sustainable. We will announce details of the new programme as they are confirmed.

Organisations that want to be involved in the Mobility strands of the new Erasmus programme can now apply for Accreditation. Accredited organisations have simplified access to funding opportunities, and an alternative method to the individual application process. Accreditation is primarily for organisations with relevant experience and capacity, that plan to regularly carry out projects.

There are slight differences for each sector, so please carefully check the information below. If you intend to apply for funding in more than one sector (for example, Adult Education and Youth) you must submit a separate accreditation application for each.

Remember that accreditation is not mandatory. You can still take part in Erasmus by applying for individual mobility projects, joining an existing mobility consortium, or hosting participants.
