Step 1: In order to apply for Erasmus+ grant you will need a PIC code for your organization.
Check with your school if they already have PIC code, if not then you will have to register in EU Participant Portal to get it for your organization. If you’re applying as a private person on an individual basis then you don’t need to worry about the PIC code (course provider won’t ask you for it if you’re paying for the course out of your own pocket. At Europass, we just need the participant’s date & place of birth and their full home address. You can register to our courses even if you don’t have this info as we need this information for invoicing purposes, and it can be given to us at a later stage)
