With the objective of establishing a European network for VET – ReferNet –, this call aims at selecting one applicant from Finland, Greece, Hungary, Iceland and Malta, 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 2016.

Framework partnership agreements are implemented through Specific grant agreements. The Framework partnership agreement defines the legal and financial framework and the scope of activities. Specific grant agreements define the partner’s annual work plans. Applicants are therefore required to submit:

(a)       a proposal for a four-year framework partnership agreement for the year 2016-2019; and

(b)       a grant application for work to be carried out under a specific agreement for 2016 (1st January – 31 December 2016).

This call has been published in the C Series of the Official Journal of the European Union 2015/C 366/06 of 05/11/2015.

Deadline of submitting proposals: 02/12/2015 (17h00 for hand-delivered proposals).

Requests for additional information/clarification should be received by 18/11/2015.

The answers to such requests, if any, will be published under this banner, therefore please visit Cedefop's website frequently for updates.
