Extra-european international mobility and cooperation
The aim is to test new financing models, to explore the added value for Swiss actors in non-European exchange and mobility activities and to acquire useful elements for the Confederation's long-term financing policy. The National Agency for Exchanges and Mobility Movetia has been mandated to support project promoters in the preparation of funding applications.

It is important that the project is innovative in nature and that it can generate added value for Swiss actors through exchange, mobility and cooperation activities outside Europe.
