Final touches on the upgrade2europe project

As the upgrade2europe project is getting close to its completion, the partnership had their last meeting in person in the middle of summer, on 18th July 2023. Our last meeting was hosted by the lead partner,  emcra - Europa aktiv nutzen in the German capital, Berlin.

The main focus of the partner meeting was on finalizing and harmonizing the IOs, on the Europewide dissemination and exploitation activities of the project products, the quality assurance, translation into 8 languages, and insertion of the language versions on the project website. The project partners were preparing enthusiastically for the Multiplier event that was being organised on the following day as well.

The project provides SMEs and SMOs, as well as VET organisations and trainers, with the necessary materials and tools for developing their Europeanization strategies and supports them in intensifying their international activities.


During the course of the project our consortium has developed an integrated digital learning tool and six complementary products that will be soon available online.

Using the results of the upgrade2europe project learners can acquire the necessary knowledge for the Europeanization of their organizations step by step and apply them in their daily work. At the same time, training providers can use the material and our curriculum for developing training offers.

In the finalization phase of the project, the partners are putting the last touches to the training materials.

The results of the project are:

  1. A Process Model that demonstrates how to advance systematically and successfully from national to European work.
  2. A Curriculum based on the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).
  3. The upgrade2europe Handbook, which facilitates personal and practical training at the workplace with the help of “ready-to-use” methods and tools.
  4. Teaching and learning videos that include important areas of Europeanization in thematic blocks and provide users an overview of the relevance of the learning areas.
  5. A digital self-assessment tool which learners can use to analyze the maturity of their organization for transnational work in Europe and receive individual recommendations for development.
  6. An e-mail course to increase the awareness of the importance of Europeanization. The e-mails are sent to subscribers weekly for the period of 3 months.


We are proud of the high quality project products, that are supporting the target groups in implementing their international ambitions in a personalized and tailormade manner, thus responding to their individual needs and challenges.
