Movetia is widening its range of opportunities for exchanges and mobility to countries or regions outside Europe. The Federal Council has just created the legal basis for international mobility pilot projects for training purposes.

This is an experimental solution limited to a three-year period. It makes it possible to support the funding of pilot projects bringing together Swiss stakeholders and partners from countries not taking part in the European “Erasmus+” programme. It will also involve trying out new models for encouraging and promoting mobility, examining the added value of extra-European exchange and mobility activities for Swiss stakeholders and gathering useful information for a federal policy of long-term promotion in this field.

Movetia is responsible for promoting the options available, for advising and supporting potential project promoters and for evaluating the submitted projects. The call for projects and the project submission forms will be published in March 2018.
