Online Info Session on 30 November 2021: Erasmus+ Virtual Exchanges Funding Opportunities

The video recordings and presentations of this information session are now available below!

What is Erasmus+ Virtual Exchanges

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 debating or training does not fully replace the benefits of physical mobility, participants in virtual exchanges ought to reap a number of the benefits of international educational experiences. Virtual exchanges also help spreading European values. Moreover, 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 should be easily integrated into youth (non-formal education) 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 of them or from both. All projects under this call will involve both organisations and participants coming from EU Member States or third countries associated to the programme (Programme Countries) and from Partner Countries.
