Erasmus + Sector Skills Alliances

Medium to large projects focusing on international cooperation between higher education institutions and companies that develop joint solutions to mutual challenges in vocational education.

Priorities of Erasmus + Sector Skills Alliances

The overall priority is to respond to the needs for competence of the workforce through cooperation to develop vocational education, especially with the focus on developing digital skills. There are three sub-priorities within each call, called Lot 1, 2 and 3.

Who can participate?

  • Requirements for the number of partners, the number of programme countries and the composition of partners vary within the three sub-priorities.
  • Both education institutions and working life must be represented.
  • One of the partners coordinates the application and potentially the project.
  • If your academic environment does not have experience with this type of project, you may want to start as a partner, not as a coordinator.

Duration of the project

The projects can last from 2 to 4 years, depending on which of the three sub-priorities the application addresses.

What can you apply for?

Project development support (PES)
