Call for proposals - Cedefop’s European Network for Vocational Education and Training (VET) GP/RPA/ReferNet-FPA/001/11 Closed!


ReferNet is Cedefop’s European network for Vocational Education and Training (VET). The mission devoted to ReferNet is to support Cedefop by reporting on national VET systems and policy developments and by raising the visibility of VET and Cedefop’s products. It comprises 29 members known as ReferNet national partners from EU Member States, Iceland and Norway. ReferNet national partners are key institutions involved in VET in the country they represent.

European network for VET — ReferNet —aims at selecting one applicant from each eligible country (EU Member States, Iceland and Norway) with which Cedefop will conclude a four-year framework partnership agreement; and on concluding with each successful applicant, a specific grant agreement for a work plan to be carried out in 2012.


Framework partnership agreements are implemented through specific grant agreements. Therefore, applicants shall not only submit a proposal for the four-year framework partnership (which, if successful, will lead to the signature of a Framework Partnership Agreement for the years 2012 to 2015) but also the grant application for the 2012 action (which may lead to the signature of a Specific Grant Agreement for the year 2012).
