Your local contact point

Your main contact throughout the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme will be your local contact point. These entities are selected by the European Commission and they will guide you throughout your exchange: help you with your application, help you establish a successful relationship with a suitable entrepreneur as well as providing you with all the answers to your questions. You should choose a local contact point which is active in your region or in your country of residence. If you live in one of the few countries where there is no local contact point, you may want to register with a local contact point located in another European country of your choice.

You may be offered the opportunity to participate in an induction course to prepare you for your exchange.

Your local contact point will assess your application process. Once accepted, you will be able to search for an entrepreneur. A host entrepreneur's local contact point will also offer local assistance to visiting new entrepreneurs during their stay.
Please note that the published list of IOs may still be changed (updated). The changes will be made as swiftly as possible in order to ensure a smooth access to accurate information for users.
