Transnational Cooperation Activities (TCAs) are events arranged by National Agencies to encourage collaboration and sharing of best practice within Erasmus+. They can be training and support events aimed at National Agency staff and project coordinators; contact seminars to find project partners; or thematic seminars addressing specific topics in education, training and youth work. TCAs in the youth field are organised through the SALTO (Support, Advanced Learning and Training Opportunities) network; you can find out more about them here. TCAs in other fields are arranged by National Agencies themselves, and opportunities to attend are announced here.
TCA costs vary according to the venue and programme involved. In general, participants in TCAs organised through SALTO receive a 70% reimbursement of their travel costs from Léargas. Participants in TCAs organised directly by other National Agencies are asked to contribute €50 towards the costs agreed with Léargas (usually travel, event fee and accommodation).
Taking part in a TCA allows organisations to expand their base of knowledge, extend their network of contacts, and increase the impact of their own work through sharing of information.
