ESF Transnational Platform Annual Conference: Call for workshop proposals

ESF Transnational Platform Annual Conference: Call for workshop proposals


The annual ESF Transnational Platform conference will take place on 23 and 24 May 2019 in Brussels. This conference will bring together up to 300 representatives from European Social Fund Managing Authorities, project promoters, policy makers and stakeholders at EU and national levels.

Each year, the ESF Transnational Platform annual conference hosts workshops and plenary sessions. Discussions focus on current policy issues in the fields of employment, education, learning and skills, social inclusion, administrative reforms, and the role that the ESF and transnationality can play in promoting, testing, and scaling-up effective measures. Successful and inspirational practices funded by the ESF and other EU Programmes are also showcased.
