In these challenging times for the associations that work in the field of international mobility, a big effort is given to deal with what concerns Covid-19 and Erasmus+ Projects regulations. Therefore, the European Commission defined how to implement the approved projects adapting to the exceptional situation due to Covid-19.

In the note of June the 12th, addressed to all national agencies, the European Commission – Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture shared new guidelines on how to implement virtual and mixed mobility in the projects approved under Erasmus+ Youth in Action in the years 2017-2018-2019 and 2020. For instance, you will find how to manage organisational support, special needs and exceptional costs.
