The European Commission encourages ongoing projects under the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programmes to adapt the project activities to support persons who have fled the war in Ukraine. Making adaptations to the activities is voluntary.

In all Key Actions (KA1: Learning mobility and KA2: Partnerships for Cooperation) and activities of the Erasmus+ programme. Under the European Solidarity Corps programme, volunteers from Ukraine can be hosted without a sending organisation.

The adapted activities must comply with the rules of the programmes. The adaptation or refocusing of activities only applies to project phases or activities that have not yet been started and/or implemented. 

The project beneficiary can request changes from the National Agency, which assesses the eligibility of the changes on a case-by-case basis. If you are planning such adaptations, please contact the contact person of the project already in the planning phase. 

The total funding granted to the project remains the same despite the adaptations. It is not possible to increase the project grant beyond the originally granted amount, with the exception of funding made available for exceptional costs and inclusion support. Project funding may only be used for eligible project activities. For example, purchasing materials and services not directly related to project activities is not permitted. 

Even if the project activities were to be adapted to support those fleeing Ukraine, the project cannot stray away from its original general objectives.
