Social Dialogue – Decent Work Programme
The objective of programme “Social Dialogue – Decent Work” is strengthened tripartite cooperation between employer organizations, trade unions and public authorities and the promotion of decent work. It will support social dialogue, contribute to ensure that Beneficiary States are better equipped to deal with the challenges following high unemployment and to establish decent work practices, and improve the enforcement of legislation and policies on decent work and social dialogue. The Programme will also seek to stimulate and develop long‐term cooperation between Norway and Beneficiary States.
The programme in Slovenia is expected to reach the following two outcomes:
- Improved social dialogue and cooperation and
- Enhanced implementation of the decent work agenda
Second Call for Proposals under the Social Dialog – Decent Work Programme
This second call for proposals will therefore only concern project applications aiming at delivering on outcome 1: improved social dialogue and cooperation. The focus is to strengthen social dialogue and its effect. Projects can raise the capacity of social partners to participate in both tripartite and bipartite social dialogue through transfer of best practices and training. Capacity-building projects can range from very direct measures, e.g. set up structures for social dialogue and support the conclusion of collective agreements, to more indirect measures like creating a social dialogue-friendly environment, e.g. for discussing undeclared work and social dumping. Projects can also focus on increasing the capacity of national social partners to take part in EU level social dialogue, and to familiarize the players with EU legislation and the impact it has on their work.
The total amount available for financing of projects from this call is EUR 86,330. The maximum grant rate for a project is 90 percent. The applicant (project promoter) shall secure the full financing of the project. The project promoter (and/or the project partner(s)) shall provide or obtain the remaining co-financing in the form of cash.
All other information (eligible applicant and partners, call documentations, …) is available on the official webpage of the Social Dialog – Decent Work Programme.
