Study on the Impact of the Leonardo da Vinci programme on the quality of vocational education and training systemsThe objective of this study was to identify what effects transnational mobility actions have on VET professionals on a personal level, on the institutions in which they work and on the national education systems, and to determine which factors have a supporting or inhibiting effect in that context.

COEXIST is an EU Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) broad-based, multidisciplinary project which will evaluate competing activities and interactions in European coastal areas. The goal is to provide a roadmap to better integration, sustainability and synergies across the diverse activities now taking place in the European coastal zone.
The second project meeting of the COEXIST project was held in Hamburg (Germany) on the 10th and 11th November 2010. Prior to the project meeting, a workshop dedicated to the North Sea Case Study was held. The workshop served to clarify the interests of each institution and to focus the results that will be provided by this case study to the project. To download the full article (PDF) please click here. The dedicated project website www.coexistproject.eu was launched at the meeting, informing the partners and public on a continuous basis about the main results and deliverables of the project.
MarineTT is a timely EC 7th Framework Programme support action in line with the recently approved Ostend Declaration, in which the European marine and maritime science and technology community call upon the European Union and its Member and Associated States "to establish appropriate mechanisms to keep under review current marine and maritime research programmes and projects with a view to enhancing their impact by (i) exploiting the results of this research; and (ii) identifying existing and emerging gaps".
In order to gain a comprehensive overview of the knowledge generated by EU funded marine research, the MarineTT partnership has surveyed, with the support of the European Commission, 503 marine-related FP6 and FP7 projects, from which 31.6% have replied. Detailed information on the main knowledge outputs and their potential impact to the environment, education, policy makers, industry and the scientific community has been acquired.

BACK to top National Aquaculture Sector Overview (NASO) map collection which uses Google Maps and Google Earth technology to assist FAO member countries to inventory and monitor aquaculture. The collection is in its early stages but holds potential use in a number of ways such as monitoring the status and trends of aquaculture development and addressing site selection and zoning issues. The NASO map collection is coordinated by the Aquaculture Service of the FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department in close collaboration with FAO’s Fisheries and Aquaculture Statistics and Information Service.
