EACEA has published the Erasmus+ Sector Skills Alliances call for proposals (EAC/A02/2019) that is open for the cultural heritage sector. Deadline for submission: 26 February 2020. Note that EACEA is holding an online Info session on the 2nd of Dec. 2019 (14.00–16.00).
Within Erasmus+ Sector Skills Alliances (LOT2), cultural heritage has been selected (besides blockchain, cybersecurity, rail supply and transport industries, work integration social enterprises and software services) to develop a Blueprint for Sectorial Cooperation on Skills, one of the key initiatives of the new skills agenda for Europe.
Under the blueprint, stakeholders work together in sector-specific partnerships, also called sectoral skills alliances, to develop and implement strategies to address skills gaps in these sectors. These sector-specific partnerships gather key stakeholders, including business, trade unions, research institutions, education and training institutions and public authorities. Partnerships for a sector must represent all the key actors interested in the development of skills in the sector.
