Here at Meraki, we want Erasmus+ projects to be within everyone’s reach. We know that some of the terminology can make developing a project seem daunting. Likewise, a lot of the language is very specific and can be difficult to grasp. For that reason, to make it all easy to understand, we´ve created this series of blog posts that explain the terminology you need for your projects.
So, every week we focus on one term, providing explanations and examples to make preparing your Erasmus+ project far easier. That way, you don’t need to worry about technical terms and can concentrate on developing your fantastic idea into a solid proposal.
In our post last week we looked at the term National Agency. We talked about what they are, what their role is and why they are important. Definitely go check it out and have a read if you haven’t done so already! It´s worth a read!
This Week´s Term is OID.
Have you heard of it before? Do you know what it is? What does OID stand for?
Well, OID stands for Organisation Identifier. It is an 8-digit code that identifies an organisation in projects managed by a National Agency, i.e. decentralised projects. You must use your organisation’s OID when you are applying for an accreditation or grant in the framework of Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps managed by National Agencies.
In fact, you can easily check whether you have one already or whether you need to make one in a few simple steps.
Essentially, if your organisation already has a PIC number from participating in projects then you´ve automatically been assigned an OID. However, if not, then all you have to do is register here to get your OID and take the first step in your Erasmus+ journey https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/erasmus-esc/organisation-registration/screen/home
We hope this has been useful for you!
