The TCA Resource Centre
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 acronym SALTO stands for Support, Advanced Learning and Training Opportunities.
The Resource Centre is hosted by the Hungarian Erasmus + National Agency, Tempus Public Foundation (TPF).

The TCA Resource Centre serves as an overall supporting body to the NAs by:
  • Providing online and offline platforms and tools for promoting consultations, planning, effective realization and evaluation of transnational cooperation activities;
  • designing trainings for increasing the capacities of NA staff regarding TCAs;
  • making the results of TCAs accessible for the public.

To maximise the possibilities TCAs offer, the SALTO E&T TCA Resource Centre has the following aims:

Partnership of the TCA RC

The Resource Centre capitalizes on the knowledge, experience and observations of NA colleagues, specifically TCA officers and NA directors and the TCA Education and Training Working Group when creating the coordination platform and harmonized processes. The RC management works in close cooperation with the European Commission. Its work is also supported by an advisory group consisting of senior management representatives from different NAs. The work of SALTO Youth Resource Centres is considered as a rich source of peer learning for SALTO Education and Training.

The annual TCA Officers’ Meeting was conducted between 22-24 May 2019 in Zandvoort, Netherlands with the participation of 53 representatives from 39 Erasmus+ National Agencies.

In different interactive sessions, participants discussed the project cycle of TCAs from the aspects of planning and promotion; selection and realization; follow up and dissemination.

TCA officers shared best practices with each other and listened to presentations about quality related topics. The audience could benefit from the key messages delivered by the representative of the European Commission plus the SALTO Youth Training and Cooperation Resource Centre. Planning of TCAs for 2020 was also on the Agenda as well as further strategic cooperation possibilities.
