All organisations running an Erasmus+ project agree to promote the programme to their staff and learners and to disseminate the results of Erasmus+ activities. Any materials or digital products produced to promote the Programme must use the European Commission's Erasmus+ logo and publicly acknowledge the support received from the European Union. The preferred option to communicate about EU funding is to write “Co-funded by the European Union” next to the EU emblem on the communication material where the EU emblem is used. The positioning of the text in relation to the EU emblem is not prescribed in any particular way but the text should not interfere with the emblem.

17 February 2015: We have been informed by the European Commission that there is a technical error in the Key Action 1 application eForms for schools, VET and adult education. The European Commission have provided the following information on the error for potential applicants:
We would like to inform you that a technical error has been detected in the calculation of Special Needs and Exceptional Costs budget sections in the application forms for the following actions:
- KA101 School education staff mobility
- KA102 VET learners and staff mobility
- KA104 Adult education staff mobility
After deleting an activity from the Activity Details table, budget table Special Needs and Exceptional Costs still contains that activity with costs associated with it in case these costs had already been encoded for that activity. The application with the Special Needs and Exceptional Costs related to the deleted Activity is validated and the application form can be submitted without any warning to applicants indicating a too-high calculated budget.
You can find a step-by-step description of this error in this document (684 KB).
Therefore, before submitting an application for KA101 School education staff mobility, KA102 VET learners and staff mobility or KA104 Adult education staff mobility, please check carefully if the budget table Special Needs and Exceptional Costs contain costs that are only related to Activities encoded in the Activity Details table.
