DurationComenius partnerships last for two years.
National priorities


  1.  A maximum of one Comenius School Partnership application per school will be accepted. If a school submits more than one application, the National Agency will ask the applicant to choose one application only. The remaining application(s) will not be considered. Should the applicant fail to do this by the date specified by the National Agency, all applications submitted by the applicant school will be considered ineligible.
  2. An institution may only have only one valid Comenius School Partnership agreement at a time. In the case where an institution with an ongoing Comenius School Partnership agreement submits another application, this application will be regarded as ineligible. This will hold for all cases except if the new application is submitted in the second or final year of the current project.
