Mobility Providers are public or private organisations which offer services to the education sector (VET providers, schools, colleges, unisersities, etc.) for the design and organisation of learning mobility programs. They provide technical support for activities such as project design, recruitment process, preparation and organisation of outgoing mobilities, as well as the full set of services required to arrange the mobility experiences in the receiving country, like arranging work placements, accommodation, on-arrival training and mentoring.
The idea of iMove came in 2011, as a way to answer to the growing demand of support from schools in some parts of Europe, which had not the operational capacity to offer Erasmus opportunities to their students.
In 2013 iMove turned into a European Union funded project under the LLP programme, leaded by Emilia-Romagna Region (IT) and involving 11 partners from 7 member states. At the end of the project in 2016 iMove became a not for profit organisations founded under the italian law.
