Transnational Cooperation Activities (TCAs) are tools for National Agencies (NAs) to form partnerships and to contribute to achieving the aims of the Erasmus+ programme.
TCAs are organized by Erasmus+ National Agencies with the purpose of bringing added value and increasing the overall quality of the Erasmus+ programme.
TCAs can be workshops, seminars and other types of events or activities (such as research) that focus on sharing good practices, lessons learnt and provide networking opportunities amongst Erasmus+ stakeholders, to increase the impact of the Erasmus+ programme at systemic level.

Transnational training, support and contact seminars of potential Erasmus+ Programme participants;
Transnational thematic activities linked to the objectives, priority target groups and themes of the Erasmus+ Programme.
