The Call for Proposals EACEA/04/13:  Implementation of the European strategic objectives in education and training (stakeholder cooperation, experimentation and innovation) was published in the framework of the Strategic Framework for European Cooperation in Education and Training (ET 2020).

  • supporting awareness-raising and institutional commitment, coordination and partnership with all stake holders to promote, in particular, skills for growth and competitiveness and youth employability (part A),
  • supporting the development, testing and evaluation, by means of field trials, of innovative policy solutions to reduce early school leaving (part B).
