Key Action 2: Cooperation for Innovation and Exchange of Good Practices

Key Action 2 is all about enabling organisations to work together in order to improve their provision for learners and share innovative practices.

This Key Action is a mix of decentralised projects run by National Agencies and centralised activities managed by the European Commission’s Executive Agency.


Decentralised Activities run by National Agencies

Strategic Partnerships in the field of education, training and youth are collaborative projects allowing organisations to improve provision, tackle common issues and share innovative practice.

Under Erasmus+ one organisation will lead the project and manage the activities and funding on behalf of the partnership. Different sizes of partnership are possible so that smaller organisations can get involved.

What’s possible?

  • Projects focusing on sectoral and cross-sectoral co-operation;
  • Projects working with industry;
  • Bilateral and multilateral partnerships, depending on the sector;
  • Implementation of innovative activities;
  • Flexibility in terms of activities and partners.


Centralised Activities run by Executive Agency

The European Commission's Executive Agency manages the following centralised activities under Key Action 2:

  • Knowledge Alliances
  • Sector Skills Alliances
  • Capacity building in Higher Education
  • Capacity building in the field of youth.
