Europe: Call open for proposals to support an European migrant education policy network
This call by DG Education aims to support an EU-wide network of organisations dedicated to the promotion of co-operation and policy development in the field of school education for children and young people with migration background. The network will be expected to represent a wide range of education stakeholders, including policy makers, education practitioners and researchers, as well as migrant and civil society associations or representatives.
The Commission intends to support the network through a four-year framework partnership agreement, which will set out the conditions governing annual grants for an action. The total budget earmarked for the co-financing of a network in 2017 is estimated at 300,000 EUR which will also be the maximum amount granted and limited to a 75% co-funding rate. The budgets for the three subsequent years (of an estimated similar amount) will be confirmed by the Commission on an annual basis.
Submission deadline is 22 February 2017. Due to the specific and unique nature of this Call, the Commission expects to fund only one proposal (network). The call is part of the Work Programme for Erasmus+ for 2017, which envisages the support of European network(s) for policy development and implementation in the field of school education.
