In order to ensure compliance with European applicable standards, the partnership has chosen WIAB as external evaluator of the project. WIAB (The Viennese Institute for Labour Market and Education Research), provides research and consultancy in the field of labour market, gender, education research and development of taxonomies and competence descriptions.



This external review will help the project to be in line with several key questions such as the European qualifications framework (EQF), a common European reference framework whose purpose is to make qualifications more readable and understandable across different countries and systems; the European Credit system for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) created in order to make it easier for people to get validation and recognition of work-related skills and knowledge; EQAVET, a community of practice that promotes European collaboration in developing and improving quality assurance in VET; and the European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations classification (ESCO).
