Document: Partner search (DE)
Swiss institutions have two possible ways of taking part in a strategic partnership.
Official participation within the framework of the EU Programme Erasmus+
Swiss institutions can take part as official partners in a strategic partnership under Erasmus+. In this case, all partner institutions (incl. Swiss partners) are supported through the European fund and no application has to be submitted in Switzerland. On the other hand, this way of proceeding requires a good explanation, in the European application, of the added value of a Swiss participation, which demonstrates that, as an alternative, no partner from a programme country could make the same contribution.
Important: Swiss schools are not allowed to participate as official partner in school partnerships.
Associated participation within the framework of the Swiss Solution for Erasmus+
Swiss institutions can take part as associated partners in a strategic partnership under Erasmus+. In this case, the Swiss institution is funded through the relevant agency in Switzerland. For this, the following basic conditions have to be fulfilled:
Submission deadline European application: 21st March 2018
Submission deadline Swiss application: 28th March 2018
Notification of European funding decision: between July and September of the application year
Notification of Swiss funding decision: approx. 30-60 days following delivery of the European funding decision
Project start: between 1st September and 31st December of the application year
Following receipt of the Grant Award Notification from the relevant European national agency (written funding decision), all projects submitted within the stipulated period are examined by Movetia with regard to formal and qualitative criteria (Evaluation criteria (DE)).
The projects are evaluated on the basis of a points system.
If the fundable projects exceed the available budget, Movetia reserves the right to make budget cuts and the selection according to the number of points achieved.
Deadline: estimated spring 2019
