The European Commission has recently published a study on the International Sectoral Qualifications Frameworks and Systems.
This study, for which EuChemS provided input namely regarding its European Professional Card for Chemists, reflects on the potential role of the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) in supporting recognition of International Sectoral Qualifications and related initiatives. The EQF is a common European reference framework. It acts as a translation device to make qualifications acquired within the different education and training systems in Europe more readable and understandable. The study can be downloaded at the European Commission website.
