How does the Covid-19 outbreak impact the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs Global?
Temporary adaptation of EYE programme rules
Following the developments in the Covid-19 outbreak, the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs Global programme has temporarily adapted its rules. Remote exchanges are possible and allowed for a period of 1 to 3 months. Entrepreneurs participating in the remote exchange are NOT eligible to receive a financial allowance. If the NE can travel, the physical exchange can take place for maximum 3 months and the NE is entitled to receiving a financial allowance. The duration of the match (remote + physical) cannot be longer than 3 months and must be achieved within a period of 12 consecutive months. These exceptional rules will apply until the 31st of December 2021 (please note that this end-date is indicative and could be modified in the next months, depending on how the situation will evolve). If you need more information, please consult your Intermediary Organization.
The Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs Global programme does not define any new travel restrictions in addition to those that already exist at national level. Participants need to follow national advice and consult the website of their respective national ministries (Ministry of Health and/or Ministry of Foreign Affairs, etc.) for up-to-date travel restriction. In addition, participants need to make sure they have a valid medical insurance, whatever their destination, in accordance to the programme rules.
Exchange programs for Canada range from a minimum of one to a maximum of three months.
No, there is no deadline to register for the programme. Interested applicants can apply online anytime at www.erasmus-entrepreneurs.eu.
Because the EYE program is financed by the European Union, participation is complimentary for Canadian host companies.
