Call for proposals 2020 - ReferNet - Cedefop’s European Network of Expertise in Vocational Education and Training (VET) GP/DSI/ReferNet_FPA/001/20 Closed!


With the objective of establishing a European network of expertise in VET – ReferNet –, this call aims at selecting one applicant from Belgium, Czechia, Greece, Ireland and the Netherlands with which Cedefop will conclude a 46-month framework partnership agreement (from 13 March 2020 to 31 December 2023), 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 46-month framework partnership (which, if successful, will lead to the signature of a Framework Partnership Agreement for the years 2020 to 2023, starting on 13 March 2020) but also the grant application for the 2020 action (which may lead to the signature of a Specific Grant Agreement for 10 months of the year 2020). The applicant must demonstrate its capacity to carry out all the activities foreseen over the 46-month period and ensure adequate co-financing for the implementation of the requested tasks.
