Lot 1 - Alliances for Education and Enterprises
Lot 2 - Alliances for Sectoral Cooperation on Skills (implementing the ‘Blueprint’)

Alliances for Innovation aim to strengthen Europe’s innovation capacity by boosting innovation through cooperation and flow of knowledge among higher education (HE), vocational education and training (both initial and continuous - VET), and the broader socio-economic environment, including research. They also aim to boost the provision of new skills and address skills mismatches by designing and creating new curricula HE and VET and implement a set of sectoral or cross-sectoral activities. With regard to changing job profiles, the focus should be on digital and green skills.

The call for proposals Erasmus + (Call for proposals 2021 – EAC/A01/2021) is open. For more information, click here and here. Deadline for submission of applications of lot 1 and lot 2: 7 September 2021 – 5 pm (Brussels time).

Lot 1 - Alliances for Education and Enterprises

They are transnational, structured and result-driven projects that bring together enterprises and both VET and HE providers to work together in partnership within one or several different economic sectors. They can address either both VET and HE or just one of these educational fields. They should foster innovation, new skills, and a sense of initiative and entrepreneurial mind-sets. They aim to foster innovation in higher education, vocational education and training, enterprises and the broader socio-economic environment. Read more about the action in the Programme guide and here. EU grant (and duration): 1 million EUR (2 years) or 1,5 million EUR (3 years).

Lot 2 - Alliances for Sectoral Cooperation on Skills (implementing the ‘Blueprint’)

They seek to create new strategic approaches and cooperation for concrete skills development solutions in a specific sector or area. This initiative will implement one major action of the European Skills Agenda for sustainable competitiveness, social fairness and resilience, the Pact for Skills by developing a sectoral skills strategy in one of the 14 industrial ecosystems: Tourism, Mobility-Transport-Automotive, Aerospace and Defence, Construction, Agri-food, Low-carbon energy Intensive Industries, Textile, Creative and Cultural Industries, Digital, Renewable energy, Electronics, Retail, Proximity and social economy and Health. The designed training programmes should address EQF levels 3-5 as well as EQF 6-8.  Read more about the action in the Programme guide and here.
