What are Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps Contact Points for the Western Balkans?

The main role of the Contact Points is to provide information about the Erasmus+ programme (youth field) and the European Solidarity Corps in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, Montenegro and Serbia (only concerning the European Solidarity Corps), in particular:

  • To make available information and relevant updates about the Erasmus+ programme (youth field) and the European Solidarity Corps in English and in the local languages through different communication channels (website, social media, other digital and printed media, newsletters etc.);
  • To reach out to potential beneficiaries with the purpose of informing them about the Programmes and possibilities to get involved;
  • To assist potential beneficiaries by answering questions about the Programmes upon request;
  • To maintain a dialogue and cooperate with other stakeholders supporting the implementation of the Programmes, such as the national and municipal authorities responsible for youth, the delegations of the European Union to the countries and the National Erasmus+ Offices (NEOs).

Additionally, the Contact Points are foreseen to assist SALTO SEE in achieving its strategic priorities in the frame of both Programmes. Representing SALTO SEE in these tasks, the Contact Points are an integral part of a network of key stakeholders supporting the promotion and implementation of the Programmes in the region.

The Contact Points have been selected on the basis of a public call in 2022.
