Great news: CUMEDIAE is happy to have been selected as part of a consortium led by Italian consultancy Eurecna, for  Lot 12 (Education, Culture and Youth), under the new Framework Contract for EU’s External Action 2023 (FWC SEA 2023), that will be running from January 2024 to December 2027. 

To respond to requests for services, we will be counting on our professional network. Perhaps you can also be part of it. 

So, this is how it works: 

The primary aim of the SEA 2023 is to provide support to the European Commission Directorates-General (DG) responsible for external action implementation, including DG INTPA, DG NEAR, the service for Foreign Policy Instruments, and EU Delegations worldwide for the next three years. Unlike a standard tender procedure, this framework contract serves as a contractual mechanism to swiftly mobilize expertise and services through specific contracts. Consortia of contractors are formed to deliver services for each Lot, with one firm serving as the designated lead responsible for coordinating proposals once the contracting process is initiated.

Lot 12 encompasses five key sectors: formal and non-formal education, human resources development (HRD), formal and non-formal vocational education and training, culture, and youth. 

Our main focus is Culture, as you know well. But in this case, and following the perspective of the Commission, we will be ready to connect also with education and youth. 

Culture, as delineated by the expansive definitions outlined in Article 4 of the UNESCO Convention on the protection and promotion of the diversity of cultural expressions, holds significant importance in advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda and fostering social cohesion. It is considered a fundamental human right, fostering and relying on principles such as freedom of expression, respect for cultural diversity, and gender equality. In addition to its role in sustainable human development, culture increasingly serves as a catalyst for economic growth. Promoting cultural diversity within development cooperation programs aligns with the EU's Agenda for Change, which acknowledges culture and creativity as vital drivers of inclusive growth and job creation.

If you are an expert in these fields and you are ready to be considered for a position as part of the technical team, please send us your CV and an expression of interest. Together we can make a difference and deliver on our wider purpose of developing and supporting culture and education.
