The initiatives have been selected with a view to implementing the Blueprint for Sectoral Cooperation on Skills framework.
From 21 applications 6 blueprint alliances were selected and each will receive up to € 4 million over a project duration of 4 years. The six newly-selected projects involve 152 partner organisations from 24 Member States and 1 other country participating in the Erasmus+ programme.
The idea of skilling for a job is central to blueprint alliances. Working together in sector-specific partnerships, these alliances will develop and implement European sector-wide strategies and vocational training solutions to address skills gaps in the following six sectors:
- block chain
- cultural heritage
- rail supply and transport industries
- work integration social enterprises
- software services
The projects will start either at the end of 2020 or at the beginning of 2021.
