With the second Call for Expression of Interest, the Kosovo Challenge Fund (KCF) invites interested consortia of vocational training institutes and partner enterprises, dedicated to the joint implementation of cooperative training programs, to apply.
KCF is a financing instrument designed to increase employability, especially of young people. It increases the competitiveness of enterprises in Kosova by financing investments in equipment and infrastructure for selected collaborative or dual training projects implemented through partnerships between vocational training institutes and enterprises. Grants are allocated through a national competitive challenge.
KCF is an initiative of the German Development Bank (KfW) funded with 5.8 million Euros in grants from the German Ministry for Economic Development and Cooperation (BMZ). The implementing agency of the project is the Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Innovation (MESTI), which is supported by an international consortium of consultants to implement the overall program.
The first call of the KCF in 2021 resulted in the 4 most successful projects proposed for funding, allocating approximately 1.9 million euros.
The second call will be open until January 27, 2023.
