Requests for Technical Cooperation
SOCIEUX+ receives requests from public authorities, mandated bodies and social partners at national, regional and local level. International organisations can also support Partner Institutions in requesting technical cooperation activities from SOCIEUX+.
The following public and semi-public sector bodies are eligible: central governments, ministries, legislative councils; regional governments; mandated bodies; and, other institutions responsible for the implementation or provision of social protection and employment issues.
SOCIEUX+ can also cooperate with social partners engaged in social dialogue which influences political and development agendas. This could include trade unions, employer and worker organisations and associations, umbrella organisations, and others. These stakeholders should also be involved in actions that benefit other partner institutions, to ensure the completion and sustainability of SOCIEUX+ actions.
Actions can be implemented in the 160 partner countries (see full list here) covered by the EU development and cooperation instruments in:
Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific
Latin America, Asia and the Middle East
Update concerning applications (July 2023):
SOCIEUX+ is still accepting new requests and invites interested institutions to contact us for advice in preparing their applications for peer-to-peer technical cooperation. Given the high demand for our services, our current timeframe for starting on-site (or remote) activities for new requests is six months. However, our team is committed to reducing this delay and is still providing rapid feedback on the eligibility and general feasibility of new requests, and of their endorsement by the European Commission.
