What is Erasmus Accreditation?
Organisations that want to be involved in the Mobility strands of Erasmus+ can 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.
Read more about Accreditation on the European Commission website.
