The general objective of the call for proposals is:

To encourage European policy cooperation to support – through ET 2020 – countries’ efforts to meet the objectives of Europe 2020, as reflected in the 2013 Annual Growth Survey and the Rethinking Education Communication, notably: developing skills for growth and competitiveness, strengthening youth employability and reducing early school leaving levels, in a context that prioritises efficient investment in education and training, by:

  • supporting awareness-raising and institutional commitment, coordination and partnership with all stakeholders to promote, in particular, skills for growth and competitiveness and youth employability (part A);
  • supporting the development, testing and evaluation, by means of field trials, of innovative policy solutions to reduce early school leaving. (part B).

 

Part A — Support to national implementation and awareness-raising of the objectives of European cooperation in education and training (‘ET 2020’ )

Applications for funding may only be made by national partnerships composed of at least three organi­ sations involving at least one national or regional authority responsible for education and training and  lifelong learning policies (pre-primary, schools, VET, higher education and adult learning), and other bodies and stakeholders’ organisations directly involved in the development and implementation of such policies.

Part B — Support to implementation of innovative policy solutions at institutional level to reduce early school leaving, in line with the priorities set out in ‘Europe 2020’ and ‘ET 2020’.

Applications for funding may only be made by transnational partnerships of national or regional ministries in charge of the development and implementation of education and training and lifelong learning policies, or other organisations designated by such ministries to reply to the call.

The partnerships must be composed of at least five organisations involving three or more eligible countries. At least one partner per country must be a national or regional ministry in charge of the development and  implementation of education and training and lifelong learning policies or another organisation designated  by such ministry to reply to the call, and at least one partner must be an evaluation body.
