Project outputs


The MiCare project combines the bottom-up approach and the European project approach by using common references as the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) and the European Quality Assurance in Vocational Education and Training (EQAVET). The combined methodology provides, in one hand, a better understanding of the target group specific needs, and, in the other hand, ensures strong compliance with European standards, facilitating the adaptation and integration of project tools to different contexts.
