Centres of Vocational Excellence (CoVE)

The overall objective of the call is to support the establishment and development of transnational cooperation platforms of CoVEs to connect Centres operating in a given local context at European level.

Projects must provide evidence that they aim to:

  • Establish strong and enduring relationships at both local and transnational levels, between the VET community and businesses, in which interactions are reciprocal and mutually beneficial, and
  • Integrate activities, build reflexive relationships between the various activities and services, and
  • Be firmly anchored into wider frameworks of regional development, innovation and/or smart specialisation strategies. These can be either existing strategies (to be clearly identified) or being developed in the context of the project (describing how the project contributes to those strategies).

The proposals financed under this call should create world-class reference points for vocational training. They should be inclusive and either bring together existing CoVEs in different countries, or expand the model by linking well-established CoVEs in one country with partners in other countries, that intend to develop CoVEs in their local eco-system, thus contributing to “upward convergence" of VET excellence.
