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;

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.
