Have you got good ideas for worldwide mobility and cooperation? Movetia’s 2018–2020 international pilot programme is aimed at Swiss educational institutions that wish to try out innovative partnerships and new ideas for mobility – outside Europe.

Which projects are funded?

The projects should have added value for the institutions and organisations themselves as well as for the Swiss education system. 

How the pilot projects are funded?

The international pilot programme from Movetia provides for two funding instruments:

Open project fund: a carte blanche, which means that anything is possible and no activities or allowances are defined. Project organisers are free to design the project as they wish. You will find information on the procedure, funding criteria and the associated forms on the open project fund website.

Specific programmes for each stage of education: proven measures for international educational cooperation (such as international school partnerships and intensive programmes) for the worldwide networking of Swiss educational institutions. The specific offerings, funding criteria and further information can be found on the relevant subpages for school education, vocational education and training (VET) and higher education

Which deadlines should be observed?

From 2019, a new, two-stage application procedure applies. Applicants submit a project outline by 31 January 2019. They will then be told whether or not they qualify by early March. If they do, they can submit the full application by 31 May 2019.

  • The submission deadline for the project outline is 31 January 2019.
  • The deadline for the second submission in the case of a positive qualification decision is 31 May 2019.
  • The project is due to start on 1 September 2019.

What does Movetia offer?

Funding: Movetia covers a maximum of CHF 50,000 per year and 60% of the total costs. The project must not already be funded by Erasmus+ grants.

Advice: Movetia offers advice and supports the process from development of the project application to implementation and completion.
