Do you want to submit a proposal as a project leader? Please fill out the form by 16/09/2016. This form should only be completed by potential project promoters who have a clear project idea and who are willing to act as a project leader in one of the three EU-funding calls.
By the end of September 2016, we will distribute your project idea* among potential partners. Interested partners will be able to sign up for the project development workshop until 21/10/2016. An e-confirmation of participation will be sent in the last week of October.
To warm up, you can participate on Thursday 8 December in an afternoon seminar. During the evening network cocktail you will have the opportunity to exchange your views with experts on education and policy officers of the European Commission.

They are a pull factor for investment and a catalyst in the virtuous circle of job creation and growth. They are key to social cohesion.â€
