Our Expertise

1 EUGES Cologne : The EU-Agency of the Regional Government of Cologne/Germany (EUGES) belongs to the school supervisory department which is responsible for all 58 vocational colleges in the area of Cologne. For these colleges it provides a general service with respect to all questions of European activities. Furthermore, it is an advisory centre with respect to questions of school improvement and implementation of new concepts into the vocational education with regard to a European perspective. During the last years its focus in its own projects was on the implementation of ECVET, the improvement and increase of mobilities and on quality assurance. The EUGES has good contacts to the chambers and other sector actors. Since 1995 the EUGES as applicant organisation for EU-Projects has gained experience in realisation, coordination and evaluation of numerous EU-projects such as mobility projects (MOVE, MOTION), Comenius projects (EASE), and Leonardo TOI-projects as coordinating institution (TRIFT, IT:BSE, THEME) and as partner (ECMO, Matching Frames, ERMES). Within the TOI projects, the EUGES developped several instruments to implement the ECVET process and to ensure and improve the quality of European mobility in the VET sector.
