In order to be able to guarantee quality assurance during the project, all parties involved (sending institution, participants, mandate partners, intermediary institution, receiving institution) must be informed about the plans, the skills and learning outcomes to be acquired and the quality requirements.The mobility participants undertake by contract to draw up a learning agreement / work programme. The learning outcomes to be achieved give the people carrying out the project added value and are coordinated with the education or training in the native country.With regard to intercultural differences, preparation of the participants is expected before or during the mobility phase abroad. Important pointers regarding the country and people, insurance and emergencies as well as the names of essential contact persons in the sending and receiving institution should be given. This will ensure a balance is maintained between ideas, expectations and reality. In the case of longer stays abroad, following the return to Switzerland, a debriefing with the participants is also expected. The clarification of insurance issues is also a matter for the project promoters and the mobility participants.
