Education and training institutions can find partners for their mobility projects through the erasmobility plataform. This platform was especially created for institutions in this sector who are interested in direct collaboration partnerships, without the involvement of intermediaries.
The platform is the result of a KA2 project – Strategic Partnerships – in the area of VET and aims to address 3 central aspects in the development, application and execution of mobility projects:
- Collaboration among partners: to find companies, institutions and accommodation
- Sustainability and impact: to promote work in joint, high-quality activities among partner institutions
- Financial freedom: to save costs that arise from hiring intermediaries

Teachers and schools that participate in the eTwinning portal (the electronic twinning of schools) receive support from their respective national support services during the registration process in finding partners and in project activities; these services promote the action and award prizes and seals of quality; they also organize professional development activities for teachers.
