Online info session: Erasmus+ Virtual Exchanges funding opportunity. Online info session on 15 June 2022 from 14:00 to 17:00, Brussels time.
Erasmus+ Virtual Exchanges are online people-to-people activities that promote intercultural dialogue and soft skills development. They make it possible for every young person to access high-quality international and cross-cultural education (both formal and non-formal) without physical mobility. While virtual discussions or training do not fully replicate the benefits of physical mobility, participants in virtual exchanges can still reap a number of the benefits of international educational experiences. Virtual exchanges also help spread European values. In some cases, they can prepare, deepen and extend physical exchanges, as well as fuel new demand for them.
Virtual exchanges take place in small groups and are always moderated by a trained facilitator. They can be easily integrated into (non-formal education) youth projects or higher education courses. Virtual exchanges can draw participants from both sectors, even if, depending on specific projects, they could involve participants from either only one or both. All projects under this call will involve both organisations and participants coming from EU Member States or third countries associated with the programme, and from third countries not associated with the programme.
A call for proposals for funding has just been published, with a deadline of 20 September 2022. It can be found on the Funding & Tender Opportunities Portal. The aim of this info session is to provide information about the call for proposals and to give you the opportunity to ask questions.
