Transnational Cooperation Activities

Do you work for a private or public organisation active in the field of youth work, education and training? Do you want to develop your organisation’s capacity and staff competences? Are you interested in learning about best practice in other European countries, sharing knowledge and skills with experts and peers, training your staff and/or finding partners for your projects?

If so, then Erasmus+ TCA can help you!

See all upcoming opportunities

Transnational Cooperation Activities (TCA) encompasses a range of events, seminars and workshops, which enable Erasmus+ National Agencies to collaborate and share best practice across Europe. The overall aim of the activities is to improve the quality and impact of the programme at a systemic level. When planning a TCA, National Agencies refer to the objectives set out in strategic documents such as Europe 2020 and the EU Youth Strategy

Who is TCA for?

TCA opportunities are available to all organisations and stakeholders in respect of Erasmus+, which includes those in the fields of adult education, VET, higher education, school education and youth.

Each TCA activity is designed with a specific target group or groups in mind, therefore it is important to review the TCA activity and its related field before making an application to attend.

What opportunities are available in TCA?

There are a wide range of activities such as workshops, training courses, seminars and partnership building activities on themes relevant to Erasmus+, including:

  • tools to improve the recognition of skills and competences, including those acquired through informal and non-formal learning;
  • inclusion, cultural diversity and intercultural competences;
  • European active citizenship and widening participation; and
  • employability and social entrepreneurship. 

Taking part in TCA gives you the opportunity to:

  • create and/or extend contacts and cooperation with organisations coming from similar or different fields across the UK and Europe;
  • gain knowledge and practical skills on Erasmus+ and access support on project ideas; and
  • disseminate your projects’ results at European level. 

Who organises TCA events?

TCA events are organised and hosted by Erasmus+ National Agencies in programme countries. Some youth TCA activities are organised by the SALTO (Support, Advanced Learning and Training Opportunities) Network, the European group of eight regional Resource Centres working on the European priority areas in the youth field.

Available funding

Selected participants based in the UK will receive up to 100% reimbursement of their travel costs, up to a maximum of 500 euro. Accommodation and subsistence is usually provided for free by the event organisers or else covered by the UK National Agency.

Further information

Applicants residing in other Programme countries should contact their National Agency for further guidance. Applicants from Partner Countries Neighbouring the EU (youth TCA only) should contact their regional Salto Resource Centre.
