PIC (Participant Identification Code)
The 9-digit PIC is obtained and managed through the Participan Portal, now Funding and Tenders Portal, and identifies organisations in projects managed by the Education, Audio-visual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA), i.e. centralised projects.
If your organisation will continue to participate in actions managed by the EACEA (i.e. centralised actions managed by the Executive Agency, not by a National Agency) or if it you are a new organisation wishing to participate in such actions, then you will need a PIC and will have to manage your information in the Funding and Tenders Portal.
OID (Organisation ID)
The 8-digit OID, which is prefixed with an E (sample OID: E12345678), is obtained and managed through the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps platform, and identifies organisations in projects managed by a National Agency, i.e. decentralised projects.
If your organisation has already participated in any Erasmus+ or European Solidarity Corps actions managed by a National Agency, and you already have a PIC (Participant Identification Code), then you do not have to register again.
How to register a new organisation in the Organisation Registration System
Firstly, please ensure that your organisation is not already registered.
If your organisation hasn’t been registered, visit Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps platform and click on ‘Register My Organisation’.
