Transnational cooperation in the ESF helps develop better and more effective employment and social policies and improve the delivery of reforms, essentially by enabling people to learn from experiences and good practice in other countries.

Transnational cooperation is implemented in three different ways:
  • On the basis of common themes, whereby Member States benefit from an EU-level platform established and operated by the Commission (the Common Framework);
  • Without central coordination (the flexible approach);
  • Through a combined approach of the above.
The ESF Transnational Platform (ESF TP) helps European Social Fund users to work with partners in other countries:
