Framework Operation #13 for Skills, Education and Training


Framework Operation for Sub-Projects to be entered into with financial intermediaries.It builds on the implementation of the previous European Commission guarantee programme managed by the EIF, namely the EFSI Skills and Education Guarantee Pilot, which was launched with the overarching objective to facilitate access to debt financing and enable the skilling and upskilling of more people. Via the Sub-Projects forming part of this Framework Operation, the ElF expects to support quality and inclusive education and lifelong learning, reinforce European higher education, and contribute to the green and digital transitions. With the risk sharing solution enabled by the lnvestEU guarantee, the ElF shall aim to incentivise more financial or non-financial institutions to provide financial solutions for the skills and education sectors thus help consolidate the very nascent education financing market

Framework Operations (“FO”) represent envelopes under which the Implementing Partner then can add sub-projects. The FO is published when the first sub-project is signed. The field “Project locations” references the possible geographical location of sub-projects that can be signed under the FO. It does not mean that for each of the Member State listed a signed sub-project exists.
