Deadlines

Deadlines

Here are the official Erasmus+ application deadlines for 2021.  All deadlines close strictly at 11:00am Irish time (12:00 noon Brussels time). If you miss the official application deadline you will not be able to apply. 

The only case in which late applications may be eligible is if there is a technical problem on the side of the European Commission, not of the applicant. There are very specific conditions where a late application caused by a technical problem can be accepted. These are:

  • The date and time of the last submission attempt (listed in the submission summary) is before the deadline.
  • You inform the Programme Finance and Operations team of the difficulty within two hours of the application deadline.
  • You email opsfin@leargas.ie the complete, unmodified application form (in pdf format) within two hours of the application deadline, along with a screenshot of any error notification.

We will then review the issue and decide whether or not the late submission is eligible. If it is, we will inform you of the next steps for submission.

Please visit the European Commission website for more information on submitting an application form.

Mobility project application deadlines are the same for both short-term projects and organisations holding an accreditation. Check the official Erasmus+ Programme Guide for full details.

Erasmus Accreditation

Organisations that want to be involved in the Mobility strands of the new Erasmus programme can apply for Accreditation.  Accreditation is not mandatory, but accredited organisations have simplified access to funding opportunities, and an alternative method to the individual application process. Accreditation is primarily for organisations with relevant experience and capacity, that plan to regularly carry out projects.

  •  Erasmus Accreditation for Adult Education, School Education and VET organisations: 11.00am, 19 October 2021
  • Erasmus Accreditation for Youth organisations: Rolling deadlineapplications can be accepted at any time
