EFFEBI is Founding Member of the Centre for Research and European Studies - Future Business (CRES). CRES aims to realise studies, researches and European projects in order to improve active citizenship and promote European Policies in Education and Training areas. CRES Founders are 11 Centres of Excellence, from 9 European Countries (IT, EL, ES, DE, RO, PT, SE, MT, RU) and active on different sectors, ensuring a high-quality level and an interdisciplinary approach.
Even if the FSS has traditionally been the main field of action for EFFEBI, it has been activating for transferring its knowledge and experience in other sectors (e.g. Quality Assurance, education and training, social inclusion, information, communication technology and ICT); showing the positive impact that European instruments of lifelong learning can have on training/educational paths. Indeed, one of its aim is the promotion of the EU dimension in vocational education and training (VET) through the design of professional qualifications in line with the principles of EQF, ECVET and EQAVET as well as the promotion of the EU dimension in academic education through supporting cooperation among HEIs and business and research.
