A mobility consortium is an organised group of actors established for the purpose of arranging mobility.
The consortia must be national: all member organisations must operate in the same country. The minimum size of the consortium is three organisations, of which at least two must be higher education institutions. The consortium members may also include companies or other private or public organisations of working life or a field of education. The consortium can organise all forms of mobility: student, trainee, teacher and staff exchanges as well as diverse intensive courses, or only one or some of these.
The accreditation is a procedure in which the Finnish National Agency for Education determines the mobility consortium’s eligibility for grants. Accreditation entitles the consortium to apply to the Finnish National Agency for Education for Erasmus+ grants to fund European (KA131) and/or international (KA171) mobility.
