Programme Guide

The Erasmus+ Programme Guide is the key document for anybody who would like to have a thorough knowledge of the Erasmus+ programme.

The Erasmus+ Programme Guide is an integral part of the 2023 Erasmus+ Call for Proposals.

Organisations and institutions seeking funding in the framework of this call must comply with the conditions for participation and funding expressed in this Guide.

The document provides information on:

  • the priorities of the programme,
  • the actions supported,
  • the funding available for different actions,
  • detailed information on participation.

The Funding and Tenders Portal

In this section you can find information on how to apply for the calls for proposals and tenders announced under the European Commission.


With calls for proposals the Commission selects, on a competitive basis, organisations or natural persons to implement projects co- financed by EU because these projects contribute to EU policy aims.


STEP 1 The European Commission and its funding bodies publish calls for proposals on the Funding & Tenders Portal. The Portal is the single point of entry for all EU funding and tenders, i.e. grants, prizes and procurements managed by the European Commission and other EU services. On the Portal most calls are divided into topics, where you can find Erasmus+ Programme as well.

STEP 2 Find project partners (optional) 

Read the topic conditions to assess the partnership and other eligibility requirements of a call. To publish your partner search request or offer, use the Partner Search to select an organisation based on their profile or their previous participation.

STEP 3 Create an EU Login account 

Each user has to have an EU Login account to log in on the Portal. If you already have such an account, you can use it for any interactions supported on this site from proposal submission to reporting.
If you do not have an account yet, you need to create it by clicking on
REGISTER. Otherwise you get access only to the public services of the site (eg. searching funding opportunities, reading guidance, etc.)

STEP 4 Register your organisation

The Participant Register is the Commission online tool to register and manage the data of the organisations participating in the EU programmes. It allows consistent handling of the participants` official data and avoids multiple requests to enter the same information.
If you want to participate in a project proposal, your organisation needs to be registered and have a 9-digit Participant Identification Code (PIC). This unique identifier of your organisation will be used as a reference by the Commission in any interactions.
Check if your organisation is already registered, or register it.

STEP 5 Submit your grant proposal

How to access the submission system?
Select your topic and go to the Submission Service section of the topic page. Make sure that you select the correct type of action before you start drafting a proposal. The link to the submission system is available, if the status of the call is ‘open’. A login with your EU Login account is required.

For more help and assistance, please refer to the manuals and handouts below. 

Distance Calculator

The distance calculator is designed for organisations taking part in the Erasmus+ Programme to calculate travel distances for grant support to individuals.
Based on the distance expressed in km, the corresponding distance band must be chosen in the application and report forms.

In order to use the calculator, you should:

  1. Begin typing a location in the “From:” box when provided with the list of locations, click on the correct one.
  2. Repeat the procedure for the “To:” box.
  3. Click “Calculate” to obtain the distance, provided in kilometres.

Please note that you must choose a specific city, town, or village and not a country.

If you do not click on an option in the “From” and “To” boxes, no result will be displayed.

If you receive a distance of NaN, please refresh your page and follow the instructions above.

You can access the distance calculator here.
