Information updates - Published 19/01/2012

Serbia

DG Education and Culture has informed the EACEA that Serbia has signed the Memorandum of Understanding on the 21 December 2011 for its participation in the Lifelong Learning Programme. 

This means that the formal steps have been completed for Serbia's participation in the Lifelong Learning Programme. Consequently, organisations in Serbia are eligible to participate as partners in the relevant centralised actions of the LLP Call 2012, as outlined on page 8 (1.6 New Countries) in the Instructions for completing the Application Form and its attachments and in the Explanations by action.  This means that organisations from Serbia can participate both as applicant and partners. 

Erasmus Multilateral Projects

Erasmus Multilateral Projects with a duration of 24 months: The maximum EU grant for a project of 24 months’ duration is 400.000€. Please see Frequently Asked Questions for information regarding error messages in the Excel tables.

 

Information updates - Published 21/12/2011

The European Commission has announced that Albania will not participate in the Call 2012.  Please visit the website of DG EAC for further details: http://ec.europa.eu/education/tools/llp_en.htm

For applications to be submitted, this means that organisations from Albania cannot participate as full partners in the applications, but have to be treated as  Third Country partners.

Therefore, applicants who  would like to involve organisations from Albania should contact the  helpdesk for the action concerned (full list of helpdesks available at the end of this webpage) to get advice on how to complete the eForm (Please do not contact the Agency's technical helpdesk for the eForm).

 

Information updates - Published 09/11/2011

The following documents have been updated:

  • The eForm,
  • The detailed budget tables and Workplan/Workpackages summary chart (excel tables)

Please note these updates:

  • affect only Erasmus Multilateral Projects, for which there was an error in the maximum grant amount: the correct amount is 400.000 euro instead of 300.000 euro. If you are preparing an application for an Erasmus Multilateral Project, please use the updated version of the eForm and excel tables.
  • do not affect any other actions; therefore if you have already started to work on the previous versions of the eForm and excel tables, you can continue to complete them.
