The European Commission (EC) has a number of tools for Erasmus+ projects to assist with reporting requirements. They are useful to all sectors under the Erasmus+ programme, whether the grant is for a Mobility project, Strategic Partnership or Structured Dialogue project under the Key Actions which are decentralised and managed by the UK National Agency.
The European Commission Authentication System (ECAS) changed its name to EU Login in 2016. An account is required before submitting your Erasmus+ application to access digital systems developed or used by the European Institutions. For example an account is needed to log in to Mobility Tool+. You can read more about EU Login in the European Commission's manual (3.13 MB).
If you already have an ECAS account, you don't have to do anything. Your credentials and personal data remain unchanged. If you need to create an account you can access EU login here.
Mobility Tool+ is the EC's online management and reporting system. You can access Mobility Tool+ using this direct link. Report templates for your project can be accessed via Mobility Tool+, including interim reports which are submitted during your project’s lifecycle and final reports submitted after the project end date.
The exact requirements vary depending on the Key Action and will be stated in your grant agreement. Please refer to this and your project handbook or contact us if you are unsure about what you need to do.
It is important that the Mobility Tool+ is kept up to date throughout your project’s life cycle and that the information is accurate. For further information you can view the European Commission’s online Guide for Beneficiaries which can be accessed by logging into Mobility Tool+ using your EU login. This includes step-by-step instructions for using the tool as well helpful screenshots. For Key Action 2 projects, we have produced a quick start guide to using Mobility Tool+ (589 KB).
The EC has created a data dictionary (693 KB) for those who use the importing function of the Mobility Tool+.
The distance calculator is designed for organisations taking part in the Erasmus+ Programme to calculate travel distances for grant support to individuals.
The OLS supports language learning for Erasmus+ mobility participants taking part in long-term mobility activities. Download the European Commission’s OLS beneficiary user guide and OLS technical Q&A guide. You can also read the EC’s Frequently Asked Questions on OLS which cover general support, logging in, technical queries and more.
The EC has also produced a promotional guide (611 KB) with links to further information on the OLS Tool.
For more information about the OLS language assessment and language courses, these ‘virtual tours' have been created by the EC for help with assessment and courses.
