The purpose of this project (coordinated by ICF, Belgium) is to enable the European Commission to fulfil its tasks of supporting national authorities and VET stakeholders to promote and apply the ECVET principles and tools, coordinating the governance and cooperation process, developing ECVET in coordination with other instruments that support flexible learning and career pathways.

In January 2012, the Austrian National Agency for Lifelong Learning set up an ECVET contact point. At the same time, a team of national ECVET experts has been appointed and the initiative continues in 2016.

The overall aim of this study is to develop a mapping of internationally used sectoral qualifications systems and frameworks and their qualifications. The study will inform future reflection on how these types of qualifications could be linked to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).  

The HCEU project will develop a competence matrix (VQTS-method) for health care professionals in ‚elderly care‘ and ‚nursing‘ . It will also create tools and instruments for facilitating validation processes of foreign elderly care and nursing professionals within the project membership countries Germany, Austria, Poland, Hungary and Greece in order to foster mobility.
