For example, if the home institution of the student is in town X, the host institution forthe Erasmus study period is in town Y, and the IP takes place in town Z, the eligible travelcosts for the IP for this student would be between Y and Z and back.Participating students or teachers should be either:
nationals of a country participating in the Lifelong Learning Programme (registered at arespective partner HEI);
nationals of other countries enrolled in regular courses in institutions of higher educationin a participating country, or employed in a participating country, under the conditionsfixed by each of the participating countries, taking into account the nature of theprogramme (please refer to relevant National Agency website).
Can students or teachers with special needs get additional funding for their participation inan IP?
Yes. For the purpose of applying for a grant within the Lifelong Learning Programme(decentralised actions), a person with special needs is defined as a potential participantwhose individual physical, mental or health-related situation is such that his/herparticipation in the project / mobility action would not be possible without extra financialsupport. The individual situation should be described and the particular needs and extracosts attached to it should be detailed in the application. Based on these explanations, onthe availability of funding and the national rules, the National Agency will then judgewhether extra support can be granted.As soon as the participation of teachers of students with special needs is known to the IPcoordinator (from any HEI that participates in the IP), the IP coordinator should contact itsNA and request extra funding for special needs.
Can an organisation which is not a HEI (association, enterprise etc.) participate in an IP as apartner?
Since these bodies do not have an EUC and do not have any students they can onlyparticipate in the IP as external experts but not as partners. This would have to be explainedin the application form. The costs of their participation should be covered from theorganisational costs as they may not use the budget for travel and subsistence.
Can an IP take place in more than one location?
As a general rule, the IP should take place in one location. If the quality of the application isgood and adequate reasons are given for having the IP in different locations it could beconsidered eligible. The rule of 10 continuous full days of subject related work has to berespected.In this case the eligible
are as follows:
from the location of the home institutions to the first location (except forparticipants from institution(s) from this location);
from the first location to the second location (for all participants);
back from the second location to the locations of the home institutions (except forparticipants from institution(s) from the second location).The eligible
are as follows:
for the first location: to everybody, except for participants from institution(s) fromthe first location;
