Final conference in Brussels

Bolster Up - European Conference on 16. September 2014 in Brussels

Why is there a European project called

„Transparency for Upholstering and Cabinet Making – Qualifications and Quality in the European Furniture Industry“?

Against the background of globalisation and required flexibility of work forces, demographic developments and the increasing demand of skilled workers in the wood working sector and also transparency of education systems it is urgently needed to go beyond concrete steps through a pure comparison of education systems and the respective regocnition of qualifications.

This project is dedicated to a vision, the vision of a new European Core Profile!
