Key Action 3 provides grants for a wide variety of actions aimed at stimulating innovative policy development, policy dialogue and implementation, and the exchange of knowledge in the fields of education, training and youth. The majority of them are managed by the EACEA. Most of the actions under KA3 are managed outside the annual general call for proposals.
The three main instruments that are managed through specific calls for proposals published on this website:
Initiatives for policy innovation giving support to forward-looking cooperation projects on policy developments and European policy experimentations led by high level organisations and public authorities to stimulate innovative policies and prepare their implementation;
Civil Society Cooperation providing support to European NGOs and EU-wide networks active in the fields of education, training and youth with the aim of raising the awareness about European policies and to boost the cooperation with the public authorities.
