Follow up and Dissemination Activities

Follow-up and dissemination activities seek to complement the European-wide mutual learning activities in order to achieve the objectives of the Mutual Learning Programme. In particular, they:

  • Develop partnerships or networks which pursue the identification and exchange of good practice in a transnational context, and/or
  • Encourage mutual learning within Member States and between Member States, including all key decision makers and stakeholders of the most effective policies and practices within key areas for the European Employment Strategy, and/or
  • Promote a wider and more effective dissemination of knowledge about the European Employment Strategy. and its implementation to national or European-wide stakeholders.

The European Commission supports the activities by launching calls for proposals, whereby public authorities in the Member States can apply for co-funding of projects to be conducted nationally or in co-operation with other Member States, involving a larger group of stakeholders.
