Individual Projects


SERI sponsors individual projects for the purpose of obtaining short-term answers to individual research questions relating to innovative and individual aspects of VET and PET. Such projects deal with VET- and PET-related issues that are not already being researched by a Leading House.

Funding for individual VET/PET-related research projects may be provided under one of the following conditions:

  • SERI issues a call for tenders for research to be conducted in relation to current research questions. Interested researchers at higher education institutions may then submit a corresponding application.

The funding of new research projects is currently not possible.
