Erasmus+ Support Network

 

To bring Erasmus+ as close as possible to the participants and make sure it works well across different countries, the EU has a network of assisting institutions to manage the programme. Organisations seeking further information on Erasmus+ can contact their National Agency, National Office or the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency in Brussels.

The Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) of the European Commission is responsible for the management of certain parts of the EU’s funding programmes in the fields of education, culture, audiovisual, sport, citizenship and volunteering.  Erasmus+ Programme is being managed by the Education, Audiovisual and Cultural Executive Agency

The Agency is responsible for most management aspects of the programmes, including information and support to applicants and beneficiaries, dissemination and exploitation of projects’ results and contribution to European Knowledge and expertise. The mission of EACEA includes:

  • drawing up conditions and guidelines for funding opportunities
  • evaluating applications, selecting projects and signing project agreements
  • financial management
  • contacts with beneficiaries
  • monitoring of projects (intermediate and final reports, and controls)
  • on-site project visits

Fully operational since 1st of January 2006, the Executive Agency operates under the supervision of its four parent Directorates-General of the European Commission:
