The call intends to support Member States to comply with the obligations under Article 19 of Regulation (EU) 2016/568 by either: establishing an inventory to map their national, regional and sectoral classifications to and from the European classification in order to maintain these classifications interoperable, or replacing their national classifications with the European classification. The following two mutually excluding actions may be co-financed:

  • Action A: Produce mapping tables: this action is about keeping the national classification but cross-referencing it to the ESCO concepts and apply the 7-step process (as described in the ESCO implementation manual);
  • Action B: Adopting ESCO, the European Classification: article 19(4) of the EURES Regulation states that ‘Member States may choose to replace their national classifications with the European classification, once completed, or maintain their interoperable national classification systems’.

The EU grant may not exceed 80% of the total eligible costs of the action. Proposals under action a) Produce mapping tables can receive a maximum grant of € 100,000. Proposals under action b) Adopting ESCO, the European Classification can receive a maximum grant of € 300,000. Deadline for submitting proposals is May 20, 2019.
