Leonardo Da Vinci programme
When and how to participate ?
The annual deadlines for the submission of pre-proposals and full
proposals are laid down in the Community calls for proposals.
Promoters may present their proposals in any year, provided they are
in compliance with the deadlines set in the appropriate calls. In
addition to these deadlines, participating countries may establish,
for each selection year, further deadlines for the Mobility measure.
Calls for proposals are organised at
Community level and published in the Official Journal of the
European Communities. In addition to the deadlines for submission
and selection of proposals, the calls also describe the programme
priorities for the period in question and operational arrangements.
Promoters wishing to submit a proposal have to complete the
specific Leonardo da Vinci application form. There is one
application form for the mobility measure, and one for the
remaining measures (pilot projects, thematic actions, language
competencies, transnational networks and reference material).
There are two possible ways of filling in the application form
available at the above-mentioned address:
- by downloading the Word version,
- by encoding the proposal
on line through
the Leonardo da Vinci Web tool
After having been printed, proposals have to be mailed (postmarked)
in paper version to the National Agency and/or the European
Commission according to the applicable procedure.
Please note that only the paper version of the proposal is
legally binding. For instance, even if it is possible for
promoters to submit their proposals electronically from the Leonardo
Web tool, they are required nevertheless to send the paper version
to the appropriate bodies before the scheduled deadlines.

It is strongly recommended that promoters use the online
application form since this procedure will enable faster treatment
by the National Agencies and/or the Commission at the time of the
evaluation and selection of proposals, as well as at the time of
contractualisation and monitoring of selected projects, where
Where the promoter has not submitted his proposal on-line, the
promoter is requested to send, by email, a Word file of his proposal
to the National Agency and/or the Commission (taken into account the
dates given in the Call for Proposals). This Word document sent by
email must be accompanied by a declaration, which attests to the
fact that the Word document attached to the email is identical to
the paper version sent by post.
