Call: Human Resources Development Operational Programme Bulgaria

Acronym HRD OP
Type of Fund Structural Fund
Description of programme
"Human Resources Development Bulgaria"

OP Human Resources development will contribute actively to achieving two of the targets of the European Strategy for Smart, Sustainable, and Inclusive Growth Europe 2020. These are the targets in the fields of employment and the fight against poverty and social exclusion.

HRD OP is set upon the following three pillars:

  1. Higher employment rate and better quality employment by fighting against unemployment among labour market vulnerable groups, above all youth and long-term unemployed, and also the achievement of higher employment rate among older-age people;
  2. Reducing poverty and promoting social inclusion - quality employment is the best way to tackle poverty and social exclusion, together with facilitating access to employment for people who are away from the labour market. The pillar addresses also children with disabilities, the need for deinstitutionalization and replacement of the institutional model of care for the elderly with home-based or community services, Roma integration, and provision of support to social enterprises;
  3. Modernisation of public policies - Strengthening and building up capacity of the structures which implement policies in the field of equal opportunities and non-discrimination; establishing a better coordination between the institutions, providers of social and healthcare services and the civil sector. Within this pillar HRD OP will provide support to transnational cooperation between organisations from Bulgaria and other EU Member States. Based on small-scale initiatives for exchange of experience and best practices, transnational projects should serve as the basis for establishing effective and efficient policies at national level.
