Could you provide some more Information on this for me - that sounds
quite interesting.
I'm living in Saarbrücken and have been for years active member of the
gemanophone OOo-Project but don't know anything about this.

Best to talk to Manfred Reiter and/or Bernhard  Mommenthal. I copied them
into the reply so you can get their contact e-mails from there.

I made an application last year through the UK NA but we had a project
already running and another was approved. I suspect they didn't like us to
have too many. So we reapplied with Germany as the lead. We could, in fact,
apply for several of these with different countries leading and different
sets of partners. It just needs some strategic organisation. The EQF
(European Qualifications Framework) and ECVET (New assessment methods for
vocational training) are high priorities for funding which is another reason
why LibO/OOo and any other FOSS project should consider developing
certification projects. There are some changes that should make it less
bureaucratic in future years. These grants are available year after year and
could bring millions of Euros into FOSS communities. However, the
application form is not for the faint hearted :-)
