The EUTRANEX (EUROPEAN TRAINING NETWORK OF EXCELLENCE) project aims to develop, share and disseminate a new approach to training, consisting of finding an international modus operandi, resulting from converging different methodologies that exist within the network.

This approach will be directed to identify and address skills gaps existing in SMEs and to encourage new employment and business development policies in depressed areas.

With the support of a team of trainers from organizations or Training Bnstitutions and Universities in Spain, Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, France, Germany and Poland, the partnership will carry out intensive research activity, awareness raising and dissemination, to identify a common vocational training model. In this sense, the international network, given the strategic importance of each partner in their respective academic training and production systems, guarantees roll out and significant impact of developed and shared training methodologies.

This information and operational network could extend to other public and private bodies to constantly exchange and investigate further best practices and to develop and share new training methodologies.
