There is a number of projects related to ECVET that are funded through the decentralised actions of the Lifelong Learning programme. Brief information about these projects can be found on the Adam database
by searching for ECVET in the project name or description. Moreover, there is the thematic network NetECVET, which consists of 14 National Agencies of the Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP). It promotes ECVET in the context of transnational mobility and supports the implementation process in the member states through a bottom-up approach. It adresses VET practitioners and supports and guides them in the application of ECVET. More information about those projects can be found in the NETECVET section on the ADAM database.
