Calls for international programmes for youth


Framework Partnership Agreement with a European policy network in the field of education of children and young people with a migrant background


Launched by the European Commission, the call aims to support an EU-wide network of relevant organisations (policymakers, practitioners, researchers and stakeholders, including with migrant background) to promote co-operation, policy development and implementation at different governance levels and support the integration of children and young people with migration background in school education.

The network will build on existing work developed at European level, especially initiatives and projects supported by the European Union's education programmes.
The network should represent a broad geographic scope and a balance of different education systems, and a variety of backgrounds of participating institutions and associations, from policy, practice and research. Focus is on the general education of children and young people (0-18 years), an exchange with other education sectors and especially non-formal education providers could be an asset, but should not constitute the core activities under this partnership agreement.

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 300,000.00 EUR which will also be the maximum amount granted. 
The EU grant is limited to a maximum co-funding rate of 75% of eligible costs. 

Eligible applicants
The call is open to entities or consortia of entities fulfilling the following conditions:
- the network should have partners from at least 15 countries. Eligible countries are the Erasmus+ programme countries.
- only applications from legal entities established in one of the Erasmus+ programme countries are eligible. Also, the coordinating applicant has to be registered as a legal entity in one of the Erasmus+ programme countries. Actions may include Associate Partners from third countries, but the cost of their participation must be financed entirely by non-EU resources.
- eligible applicants are associations, foundations and other similar national or international bodies; national education centres; ministries of education and/or training; higher education institutions and research centres.
- the applicant(s) must have had a legal personality for at least 2 years on the date of the deadline for submission of applications and must be able to demonstrate their existence as a legal person.
