Implementation of the European strategic objectives in Education and Training (ET 2020)

The general objective of this 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).

The call also provides opportunities for ministries and stakeholders to test — in real life situations — the implementation of innovative policies (policy experimentations) addressing European goals.

Budget: The total budget earmarked for the co-financing of projects amounts to EUR 4 million.

Deadline: 16 September 2013
