About EC-Aqua

The project Implementation of ECVET for qualification design in sanitation and water loss management (EC-AQUA) is executed within the Lifelong Learning Programme Leonardo da Vinci, measure Transfer of Innovation.

EC-AQUA addresses the apparent problem of insufficient transparency of qualifications at both national and international level. In the context of ever increased complexity of modern education, EC-AQUA aims to promote the EU Workspace concept through an approach supporting transparency of certificates and qualifications for transferability of competence.

EC-AQUA activities are focused on transferring the ECVET specifications for sanitation and water loss management qualifications to develop a working scheme for transparency, transfer and recognition of learning outcomes. This is achieved on the basis of PROWAT TR/06/B/F/PP/178065 project, upgraded, innovated in content and widespread in new sectoral and geographic areas.

EC-AQUA model development process involves:

  • Establishment of a working partnership for project evolvement at national and EU level.
  • Preparation of an ECVET based EC-AQUA competence map and Qualifications Ranking Record.
  • Definition of certification units and allocation of ECVET credits.
  • Elaboration of a multilanguage e-learning portal in sanitation and water loss management.
  • Development of a guide to application of the new model.
  • Testing and evaluation measures.
  • Valorisation of the EC-AQUA scheme post-project life assurance.

 EC-AQUA approach is developed by a consortium of partners from four countries: NIS-SU (Bulgaria), Intellect Foundation (Bulgaria), South East Europe Media Organization/SEEMO (Austria), Prof. Balan Interuniversity Research Center (Bulgaria), Institut National des Sciences Appliquées/INSA (France), and ERBIL Project Consulting Engineering (Turkey).They have wide experience in the EU programming development and capacity, expertise and competence for the success of the EC-AQUA measures.
