In this conference, ECVET-Lab project partners will present the identified best environmental management practices in European labs, the new Qualification Standard of environmental management competence for laboratory technicians, and a free Online Training Course for obtaining this innovative qualification. Some of the labs that took part in the development of these tools will tell how they changed their inner environmental management, and what their results were.
The objective will be to widespread these best practices and online course for improving environmental management to virtually all laboratories in Europe, as well as to present a new qualification standard that could green the existing laboratory technician VET programmes across Europe.The event will gather European, state and regional representatives of laboratories, VET centres, public authorities in charge of vocational education and environmental management.
The conference will also offer networking opportunities for the participants to discuss and share ideas during the event.
A press release of the conference is attached herewith.
