Euneos 15th anniversary

Updated information about COVID -19 – click!

The EU Commission informed (13.3. 2020) Erasmus+ program beneficiaries whose activities are impacted by coronavirus, read here.  There is a ‘time-out’ in financial issues due to the ‘case by case’ investigations National agencies are doing about ‘force majeure’ currently. Euneos is very sorry for the delay. We will come back to ‘business as usual’ ASAP.
Postponement of 12 months should help schools to finalize their pending mobilities. Euneos FI has responded to the postponement by offering new sessions of KA1 courses in autumn 2020 and in spring 2021. Changes fom the existing course to another one are possible. The normal procedure is to consult your NA in that case. The Commission has published guidelines to ensure the uniform application of EU passenger rights throughout the EU.
