According to the Financing Agreement concluded between the Government of Kosovo and the European Union concerning the National Programme for IPA 2012, the project “Aligning Education with Labour Market Needs” will be implemented through Indirect Management (previously Indirect Centralised Management) by the Austrian Development Agency. The project was financed through an IPA and ADA contribution.

The tender procedure was successfully closed in January 2015 and the project started in early 2015.
