Erasmus+ virtual exchanges projects (EVEs) consist of online activities that promote intercultural dialogue and soft skills development. They make it possible for all young people to access high-quality international and intercultural (both formal and non-formal) education without physical mobility. Although virtual debates or education do not fully replace the benefits of physical mobility, participants in virtual exchanges should gain some of the benefits of international educational experiences.

Erasmus+ virtual exchanges projects are carried out in small groups, and they are always moderated by a trained facilitator. They should be easy to integrate into youth projects (non-formal education) or higher education studies. Virtual exchange projects may involve participants from both the field of youth and the higher education sectors, although they may also involve participants from only one of the two higher education sectors.

Organisations and participants from both EU Member States and/or third countries associated to the Programme and third countries not associated to the Programme participate in all Erasmus+ virtual exchanges projects.
