Covid-19 and Erasmus+ Projects – the guidelines of the European Commission
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.
This way, in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, the directorate found solutions to deal with Covid-19 and Erasmus+ Projects. Most importantly, there is the possibility to request a change in the start and end date of the project period. Moreover, beneficiaries can carry out all or part of the activities in virtual or mixed mode.
