Mission and activities of the Association

The European Association of Quality Intermediary Organizations in Mobility is a not-for-profit standards setting association open to organizations engaged in mobilities and stakeholders interested in developing and extending quality standards for mobilities. It has been established to define and promote responsible organizational, logistical and evaluation practices in the planning, execution and follow-up of European mobilities in view of allowing mobile Europeans to benefit from international and intercultural exchanges, experiences, training and learning. The Association’s Code of Practices, to which all members commit to, addresses various quality and responsibility issues in mobilities, including accuracy and comprehensiveness of information, relevancy of activities, effectiveness of organization, adequacy of services, staffing and professionalism, value for money and participants’ satisfaction.

The Association is committed to working with individual stakeholders and multi-stakeholder initiatives on responsible mobilities. Full membership in the Association can also be used as a tool for quality assurance.
