The European Commission is ultimately responsible for the running of the Erasmus+ Programme. It manages the budget and sets priorities, targets and criteria for the Programme on an on-going basis. Furthermore, it guides and monitors the general implementation, follow-up and evaluation of the Programme at European level. The European Commission also bears the overall responsibility for the supervision and coordination of the structures in charge of implementing the Programme at national level.
Transnational Cooperation Activities (TCAs) are tools for the Erasmus+ National Agencies (NAs) to form partnerships to increase the impact of the Erasmus+ programme at systemic level.
The SALTO Education and Training TCA Resource Centre was established by the European Commission in 2018 to support Erasmus+ National Agencies to improve their transnational cooperation activities (TCAs).
The TCA Resource Centre aims to fulfil its assignment in a way to best meet the expectations of all stakeholder groups including the European Commission, therefore the Resource Centre management keeps regular contact with the EC regarding the planning and the realization of its workplan.Read more...
