About the programme
Youth exchanges allow groups of young people from different countries to meet live together and work on shared projects for short periods. Youth exchanges last between 5 and 21 days. This excludes travelling time. This is applicable to faculty exchange also. The grant supports travel as well as practical and activity-related costs necessary for the exchange.
