Call for joint proposals for Tailor-Made Training (TMT) - Orange Knowledge Programme
The requesting group must be located in one of the participating countries of the Orange Knowledge Programme.
Country priority theme & focus areas
Please note that there are priority themes and focus areas for each country. Only proposals in those themes and areas will be eligible for funding. Please check the country focus document below:
The Orange Knowledge Programme Tailor-Made Training is meant to improve the overall functioning by training a selected group of staff. A Tailor-Made Training can solve knowledge and skills challenges of a group of staff, by specifically targeting its capacity needs. A tailor-made training course must be carried out by a Dutch training provider.
A group in one of the Orange Knowledge Programme countries that has identified a training need for its staff, needs to approach a Dutch training provider directly. The two organisations then need to put together a joint proposal for the training and submit this to us.
Who can submit proposals?
Dutch institutions for secondary or higher vocational or academic education or other types of organisations that provide training courses, together with requesting organisations, such as education and training institutions, GOs, NGOs, SMEs in the specific country.
The total available funding for this call is € 3 million. The maximum subsidy per tailor-made training is € 75,000.
Co-funding for some countries
The Orange Knowledge Programme is a co-funding programme. This means that a contribution - a percentage of total costs involved - from the requesting organisation in the Orange Knowledge country is compulsory for Lower Middle-Income Countries and Upper Middle-Income Countries (DAC list of ODA recipients).
Please consult the Country Focus Document above for details.
