Welcome

 

The illustrations in the provided Wiki pages are for consultation purpose only and may not always reflect the latest implementation. 

This page explains how to view and manage (add, edit and delete) participating organisations in a project. 

When a project becomes available in My Projects after login into the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps platform, all participating organisations with an OID that are part of the signed grant agreement will be available in the Participating organisations section of the project. The beneficiary organisation must always hold an OID and is always available in the project.

General changes to the organisation information, such as name, address information, website etc. for organisations with an OID (for example Beneficiary, Consortium Coordinator, Consortium Members, Partner,... depending on the action type of the project) cannot be made in a project. These details must be updated in the Organisation Registration system

After the updates are made in the Organisation Registration system, they are then updated in the National Agency project management system. Once these changes have been confirmed by the National Agency, the changes for the organisations in the signed grant agreement are transferred to the project. To change the participating organisations that are part of the grant agreement, you must contact the National Agency for an amendment request. See the page Updates to project data in Beneficiary module for additional information.

Depending on the action type and role of the organisation, partner and/or other participating organisations can be added to the project, updated or deleted. Only the associated persons of the beneficiary, co-beneficiary and partner organisations with edit rights in the project are able to perform these actions while the project status is Project ongoing.

Access "Participating organisations" in the project

Click on "Participating organisations" in the "Content menu"

In your project, click on Participating organisations in the Content menu. The participating organisations mentioned in the grant agreement, with the exception of organisations without an OID, are available automatically in the project when it is created, and are displayed in the Participating organisations list.

The list provides information such as the OID, Organisation ID, Organisation Role, Legal name and more.

See the page List functionality in projects for additional information on the list functionalities, such as Search, Filters and the Bulk Actions.

Organisation roles

Organisations participating in an Erasmus+ or European Solidarity Corps project will have a specific role. In a project, the role of an organisation is displayed in the list of Participating organisations as well as in the organisation details of a specific organisation. 

The roles assigned to organisations in a project vary, depending on the activity type of the project. The most common examples are: 

  • Beneficiary: When a project is approved for a grant, the applicant organisation becomes the beneficiary by signing a contract with the National or Executive Agency that has selected the project. If the application was made on behalf of other participating organisations, the partners may become co-beneficiaries of the grant.
  • Consortium coordinator: A participating organisation applying for an Erasmus+ grant on behalf of a consortium of partner organisations. The coordinator has special obligations foreseen in the grant agreement. 
  • Consortium member: A organisation participating in an Erasmus+ project as part of a consortium. 
  • Partner organisation: A partner organisation is an organisation formally involved in the project (co-beneficiaries) but not taking the role of coordinator/beneficiary.
  • Invited organisation: In HED projects, any public or private organisation (not awarded with an ECHE) in an EU Member State or third country associated to the Programme or third country not associated to the Programme active in the labour market or in the fields of education, training, youth, research and innovation.
  • Accredited organisation: In Accreditations the accredited organisation is displayed with the role Accredited Organisation.
