Call for proposals 2019 - ReferNet - Cedefop’s European Network for Information on Vocational Education and Training (VET) GP/DSI/ReferNet_FPA/001/19 Closed!


With the objective of establishing a European network of expertise in VET — ReferNet —, this call 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 at concluding with each successful applicant a specific grant agreement for a work plan to be carried out in 2020.


Framework partnership agreements are implemented through annual specific grant agreements. Therefore, applicants shall not only submit a proposal for the 4-year framework partnership (which, if successful, will lead to the signature of a Framework Partnership Agreement for the years 2020 to 2023) but also the grant application for the 2020 action (which may lead to the signature of a Specific Grant Agreement for the year 2020). The applicant must demonstrate its capacity to carry out all the activities foreseen over the four-year period and ensure adequate co-financing for the implementation of the requested tasks.
