Your company can either host an exchange or send a member of staff on an exchange. To take part you need to register at the matchmaking platform, where you can post the profile of the type of employee you are intending to send or host.
Once you connect with another company via the platform, you have to send your application to the corresponding national contact point (they will be allocated to you when you register) so your exchange can be validated.
