This page explains how to search for organisations in the Organisation Registration system via the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps platform home page. 

The search functionality is particularly useful if you wish to register an organisation and you are unsure whether it has already been registered. It also enables you to find general information about an organisation registered in the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps platform.


If you plan to register an organisation it is highly recommended that you search for similar organisations before starting the registration process, in order to avoid multiple registrations. As a result you will be able to decide whether you can use an already existing Organisation ID in your application forms or whether you should continue to register your organisation before starting any application.

In addition, the status of an existing organisation is also indicated in the search results (registered, NA certified or invalidated).

Access the search

Explanation and illustration

There are multiple ways to access the search functionality:

  1. Directly on the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps platform homepage. It is not necessary to log in using your EU Login account in order to use the search on this page. By default, the simple search field is displayed.
  2. On the Search for an Organisation page, which is accessible from the Organisations menu. Selecting this option will open the Advanced Search

Search for an organisation

Simple search

The simple search option is displayed by default.

In the search bar type the complete or partial legal name, business name, website of the organisation, Organisation ID or PIC, and click Search. All the organisations containing similar values to the ones you have entered will be displayed in the Search Results. Please see the Results list section below for more details. Partial search is performed on a minimum of 3 characters on any of the search criteria.

Advanced search

On the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps platform homepage page:

  1. Select the Search for an organisation option in the Organisations menu to open the advanced search directly.
  2. Click the Expand advanced search button next to the search bar from the main page
  3. An extended set of fields, the Advanced search, is displayed, allowing you to narrow down your search.

If you are looking for a single organisation, it is preferable to search using the PIC or Organisation ID (if you have one), as it is unique to each organisation. If you do not have the PIC or Organisation ID at hand, use any of the other search criteria.

Click on the Search button. 

In our example we are searching using part of the organisation Legal Name and Country as criteria.

Depending on the search criteria you use, the results will include:

  • all the organisations containing similar values to the ones you have provided for the legal name, business name or website, and
  • only those organisations matching exactly the values you have provided for instance under country, PIC, Organisation ID, registration number, VAT number and Erasmus Charter for Higher Education Code.

To remove any entered search criteria, click on the Reset button. 

The Search Results list

Explanation and illustration

The organisations matching your search criteria are listed below the search fields.

The number of records found is displayed at the top of the list. Ten records are shown per page by default. If more than ten records are found, use the arrows at the bottom to scroll through the list and view more records,

You can sort the list by the various columns, in ascending or descending order, by clicking the up/down arrow in a specific column.

A search box is available at the top right of the results list for further search into the listed records. Type part of the legal name that you are looking for and press Search.

The result list will narrow down to your specific criteria.
