Call for proposals 2020 - Erasmus accreditation in the fields of adult education, vocational education and training, and school education EAC/A02/2020 Closed!


Erasmus accreditations are a tool for education and training organisations that want to open up to cross-border exchange and cooperation.

Accredited Erasmus organisations will gain simplified access to funding opportunities under Key Action 1 of the future Programme (2021-2027). The conditions for accredited organisations’ access to funding will be defined in yearly calls for proposals published by the European Commission.

Award of the Erasmus accreditation confirms that the applicant has set up a plan to implement high quality mobility activities and to use them to improve its education and training offer. This plan is called an Erasmus Plan and it is a key part of the application for Erasmus accreditation.


Exceptionally, two separate application procedures will be put in place for this Call.

  • Standard procedure: open to all eligible applicants. Applicants for the standard procedure will be assessed against exclusion, selection, and award criteria.
  • Light procedure: open to organisations holding a valid Erasmus+ VET Mobility Charter. Applicants for the light procedure will be assessed against exclusion and selection criteria.

The National Agency in charge of the selection will appoint an evaluation committee to oversee the management of the whole selection process. On the basis of the assessment carried out by experts, the evaluation committee will establish a list of applications proposed for selection.
