Launch of Call for awareness-raising activities to support the Upskilling Pathways programme.
The Directorate General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion (EaSI) has published a Call for Proposals for awareness-raising activities to support the successful implementation of the European Council Recommendation on Upskilling Pathways.
Upskilling Pathways facilitates the access of low skilled and/or low qualified adults to flexible pathways for enhancing their literacy, numeracy and digital skills and/or progressing towards a higher qualification and re-engaging them in learning – as part of a New Boost for Jobs, Growth and Investment, one of the ten priorities of President Juncker’s Political Guidelines and as part of the European Commission’s New Skills Agenda for Europe.
Projects selected under the Call will be targeted at stakeholders who will support the implementation of Upskilling Pathways, with a view to enabling them to increase and improve the impact of their work on low-qualified and/or low-skilled adults.
Applicants must be public entities in charge of national or regional policies and actions for upskilling adults. Any co-applicants must be public or private entities (profit-making or non-profit making) involved in the organisation, financing or provision of services such as skills assessment, validation, education and training and guidance targeted to adults.
Consortia applications must be submitted by a regional, national or transnational consortium composed of one lead applicant and one or more co-applicants (affiliated entities and associate organisations are also eligible) established in eligible participating EaSI countries. Several applicants within the same region or country can join a transnational consortium.
The total estimated budget for the co-financing of projects is €1 million for up to 80% of eligible costs. The indicative level of grant requested should be between €250,000 and €1 million.
The European Commission expects to fund between one and four proposals.
The deadline for applications is 30 June 2017.
