The exchange of information is possible to do online or in host's position (for example place of business, association or practise)
The time period for exchanges is between September and December 2021 (Final dates for the exchange are agreed between the host and the expert). Please be aware that changes in the scale of the Covid-19 outbreak may affect the plans.

Exchange of information by a visit:

The exchange programme covers expenses for the visitor up to 700 euros. These expenses can consist of travel-expenses, accommodation and meals. Money will be given in advance, and all the receipts must be sent with the financial report. The expenses are covered only according to the receipts. Unused funds or expenses without receipts must be returned. Please note, that if the expenses exceed 700 euros, the travelling member needs to take care of the rest of the costs themselves. The network member applying for the visit is responsible for purchasing the tickets, accommodation etc. The member is also responsible for travel insurance and all other practical issues and costs.

The host is expected to present their activities, safeguarding methods and share information related to ICH in their own context. There is no financial support for the host during the visit.

Online exchange of information:

Due to the work and time that online exchange demands, the programme pays a small fee (230 euros as salary for one person or 350 as an invoice for an organisation) for both the expert and the host. Online exchange is possible to agree between the participants and it can include for example video meetings, online concerts or rehearsals related to ICH practices or practitioners. Time used for the online exchange should be similar to a physical one (at least 2 x 4 hours).
