How to get an Erasmus+ Funding: tips

Step 1: Select one of our courses available! Our courses can be found here but do contact us if you cannot find a suitable course for you. We might me able to create customised courses for your organisation (minimum requirements apply). Our list of courses are also available in the School Education Gateway (the online platform of the European Commission for school education).

Step 2: Register your interest in one of our courses, by requesting and returning an application form to reception@erasmusgreece.eu. Please specify the date of the chosen course. Once we receive your application form we will reserve a place until your funding has been confirmed. Confirmation of your place needs to be made in writing as soon as the results from your National Agency are out.

Step 3: If you are unfamiliar with the Erasmus+ Funding procedures, it is advisable to read the Erasmus+ programme guide making a note of the award criteria at the end of each Mobility project.

Step 4: If applying for the first time then your organisation should register in the European Commission’s Participant Portal (see a, b, c below) in order to obtain a Personal Identification Code or PIC number essential for the application process as one of the first steps in obtaining an Erasmus+ grant.

 a) Get a login and password for secure access to URF: register in the European Commission Authentication Service (ECAS). A user manual explaining all necessary steps is available here.

 b) Then, access the Participant Portal and register the organisation. The detailed process is available here.

c) Your organisation will be required to submit 2 forms: Legal Entity Form and Financial Identification Form.

Once the registration in the Participant Portal is completed, the organisation/group will obtain a nine-digit PIC number. The PIC is a unique identifier which enables the organisation to take advantage of some features of the electronic application forms and will serve as a reference for the National or Executive Agency in any further correspondence with the applicant/beneficiary.

Step 5: Check the Financial Conditions and the Compliance with the Programme criteria. Participating organisations must verify that the project respects the following criteria: eligibility, exclusion, selection and award.

Step 6: Fill in and submit the appropriate project application form! In case you’re not sure which application form is right for you to get your Erasmus+ grant, ask your national agency and they will help you choose. Follow your national agency’s guidelines to answer all the questions in the form.

Step 7: When results on your Erasmus+ grant come in, please inform us if you are attending the course. We will then forward:

a letter of acceptance, details about accommodation, travel, living expenses, course and activities timetable, preparation material.

Payment of course fees need to be made before the commencement of the course.
