Take note

If you are applying for call 2021 please click here to view guide for Associated Persons (Call 2021).

This page explains how to add the details of associated persons for a participating organisation in the application forms. Associated persons can only be added after the organisation (applicant or otherwise) is added to the project. Depending on the type of application and the role of the organisation, at least one contact has to be provided in the application, but it is strongly advised to add at least two different contacts. It is possible to add up to 3 Legal Representatives and up to 6 associated persons in total (including the Legal representatives).

The information below must be completed both for the applicant and for any partner/participating organisation. Our example shows how to add associated persons for organisations using an Erasmus accreditation for higher education mobility consortia (KA130-HED) form.  

For information

For KA121 - Mobility for staff of accredited organisations, KA151 - Mobility of young people for accredited organisations and ESC51 - Volunteering projects application forms no associated persons can be added in the form. The associated persons for those are automatically transferred to the National Agency's project management system upon submission of your application. These are the same contacts added to the related accreditation/Quality Label request. The associated persons for those actions will not be visible in the accredited grant request.

Take note

Please note that for the following actions the contact for Online linguistic support is automatically assigned as follows: 

  • KA121 - Mobility for staff of accredited organisations: The contact is the primary contact of the associated KA120 application 
  • KA151 - Mobility of young people for accredited organisations: The contact is the primary contact of the associated KA150 application 
  • ESC51 - Volunteering, Traineeships and Jobs Projects: The contact is the primary contact of the associated ESC50 application 



  • A valid Organisation ID for your organisation must have been provided under Participating and/or Applicant organisation.
  • If you plan to have partner organisation(s) or consortium member(s) in your project, their Organisation ID must also have been provided.
