- Step 1. First, search your organization in the Database in case you have registered before for any other EU funded programme. Enter the title of organisation in English, fill in captcha code and search.

You can learn more about registration at EU Login Authentication Service from the European Commission’s Manual.
- Step 3. Access the Participant Portal at https://ec.europa.eu/info/funding-tenders/opportunities/portal/screen/how-to-participate/participant-register (“How to Participate” menu and choose “Participant register” tab). Register your organisation with your EU Login account details and get your unique 9-digit Participant Identification Code (PIC). We recommend checking first if your organisation already has a PIC and that you read the Participant Portal User Manual before you register.
You PIC status can be SLEEPING, VALIDATED or DECLARED. Your organisation cannot apply for Erasmus+ funding if your PIC is in SLEEPING mode. Please make sure to have your PIC VALIDATED when applying for Erasmus+ funding or provide your VALIDATED PIC to your applicant organisation.
If your organisation has several PICs (for e.g., several departments have simultaneously registered before) or you have not found the LEAR (contact person responsible for PIC) in your organization or you have any other technical questions, please contact the following email:
Once you have completed all the required registration steps please refer to Erasmus+ Programme Guide to check the compliance with the Programme criteria and financial conditions. For practical details on how to use the Participant Portal, please consult the following presentation.
