What is an OID number and how can it be obtained?

Those who wish to apply to the country-based projects of the European Solidarity Program must have an Organization ID (Organization ID, OID). OID will be used instead of the Participant Identification Code (PIC). However, those who have applied to the Erasmus + Program and have a PIC code are automatically assigned an OID.

The assigned OID can be entered in the “Search” field on the page, by clicking on the name of the institution / organization or the “expand search criteria” button and enter the PIC code, tax number, etc. information is learned by entering. Those who have received more than one PIC code in the previous terms should contact the unit responsible for the program to be applied.

Those who have not received a PIC code before, can also register for OID from the “Register my organization” tab on the page. On the page opened in the “Register my organization” tab, it is necessary to login with the EU Login user information.

Those with an EU Login account (formerly ECAS account) can login to the system with their existing accounts. Those who do not have an EU Login account, click on the “Create an account” tab and obtain an EU Login account and log into the system.

5) OID is a number that starts with the letter “E” and continues with 8 digits (For example: E12345678). Detailed information on the OID registration process can be found on the prepared by the European Commission.
