New deadline: NFP Tailor-Made Training programme 2017

EP-Nuffic has announced a new deadline for the NFP-TMT programme for the 1st of March 2017. It is open for Applications from organisations in NFP countries.

If selected, a matching Dutch training provider will be selected through a tender procedure with maximum budget: € 200,000. It is open also for Joint Proposals submitted by an organisation in an NFP partner country together with a training provider in the Netherlands with maximum budget € 75,000 Co-funding is a NOT a requirement this time, but co-funding of at least 2800 euro by the requesting organisation or a sponsor in the NFP country will increase the chance of selection.

The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) promotes capacity building by providing training and education for professionals. The NFP is fully funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the budget for development cooperation. Nuffic is responsible for the management of the NFP.


The Tailor-Made Training programme (TMT) is one of the modalities of the NFP. A tailor-made training course is designed to meet specific needs of a requesting organisation.
