Five thematic groups in Sweden

During the period 2009 to 2013, there were five thematic groups that compiled knowledge and experience from ESF projects.

The purpose of the five thematic groups is to compile the results of ESF projects, analyse them and disseminate project knowledge and experience. In that way, their work will have a more long-term and comprehensive strategic impact than can be achieved by the individual projects on their own.


This will among other things help to improve the quality of new projects during the period of 2014-2020.
The Swedish thematic groups also participate in several networks at the European level.


During the period of 2007-2013 Theme Group Youth have participated in the Transnational Learning Networks below;
