Leonardo Partnership Project: Enter+

Project: Enter+ (2010 - 2012)
Project Website: http://www.enterplus.net/
Partner Website: Partner login
Project Summary: Developing renewable energies and improving energetical efficiency are two important EU objectives. Though the Copenhagen summit was not completely successful, every Member State has to work in this direction, and things are moving. It will bring a need for new technologies, new jobs, new qualifications therefore an innovative training field must be developped. ENTER+ aims to improve a network of European training institutions that are involved in this field. Trainers, training advisors and managers will:
 
  • improve their knowledge of the EU and national policies, through presentations and meeting with local stakeholders,
  • share their experience, through presentations and visits of the partner-institutions,
  • present each other's pedagogical methods and tools, adapt some of them for their own situation
  • analyse good practice, and
  • hopefully build the basis for further cooperation.
