The following interested parties are eligible:

(A private sector body with a public service mission can be recognised as such by a national law of the country of registration. If such a law does not exist, the authorising officer will take into account the following factors (among others) when deciding whether an applicant fulfils the definition:
- the applicant is a purely not-for-profit body (i.e. that it has no commercial interests) or
- its budget for such a mission is mainly provided by the state or by public authorities or by another not-for-profit body or
- its tasks are performed on behalf of the state/public authorities or a not-for-profit body and are therefore deemed to be in the public interest).

Interested parties shall demonstrate through the standard application form (Annex I) that they have operational capacity to reach out to students, professors, researchers and interested citizens on the priorities, policies and initiatives of the European Union.
