Coronavirus update

Mobility Tool+ has recently been updated to allow for inputting virtual and blended mobilities and activities. Further updates related to final reports are due to take place on Mobility Tool+ and there is the possibility that, at present, some beneficiaries may not be able to fully complete their report. This may also result in delays in assessing final reports. Where possible, please try to submit Final reports on time. If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to contact the UK National Agency.

Please keep checking our website for the latest information and guidance.
