Framework Partnership Agreement under Social Inclusion
European Commission is calling for proposals for Framework Partnership Agreement under Social Inclusion.
The call aims at setting up 4-year Framework Partnership Agreements (FPA) with networks active in the area of social inclusion for the period 2022-2025. The activities to be funded include, among others, outreach activities, mutual learning among members, research activities and input for policy design.
EU level Social NGO Networks active in the areas of social inclusion and poverty reduction are instrumental in the implementation of many of the principles expressed in the European Pillar of Social Rights. This partnership will enhance the capacities of these networks to contribute actively to the development and implementation of the EU policies in this area.
The indicative budget earmarked for grants calls under this framework partnership is EUR 56.900.000 for the period of 2022-2025.
Depending on the number and quality of proposals, the Commission expects to sign between 18 to 24 framework partnerships.
The Commission expects:
to benefit from the networks’ expertise as regards the challenge (and ways to tackle them) that vulnerable groups of citizens face in the various Member States;
and to be supported in its outreach activities at EU, national and local level with the aim of ensuring awareness, contribution to and implementation of EU level policies and initiatives in the areas of the promotion of social inclusion and poverty reduction.
