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 four Specific grant agreements (one per financial year). 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 under this grant procedure:

a proposal for a 46-month Framework partnership agreement for the years 2020-2023 and
a proposal for the Specific agreement for ReferNet action 2020 from 13 March 2020 to 31 December 2020

The announcement of this call for proposals has been published in all official languages in the Official Journal series 2020/C 13/07 of 15.01.2020.

Deadline for submission of proposals: 14.02.2020.
