IMPACT: Integrated Maritime Promotion ACTion
The IMPACT project will promote the results of a number of completed maritime vocational
education and training (MVET) projects which directly address particular problems
or deficiencies in MVET throughout Europe, and represent innovative use of ICT in
lifelong learning. Initially, IMPACT will disseminate and transfer the innovative
practices developed in several selected EU funded LLP projects to MVET providers
across Europe in order to support their valorisation. The long term vision for IMPACT
is to expand its reach and valorise other innovative ICT projects developed for
MVET through its network.
By raising standards in the field of European MVET, and providing institutions with
tools to improve the quality of the education that they provide, the employability
and mobility of European seafarers will be increased.
The consortium has considerable experience in developing educational programmes
and innovative ICT resources for MVET institutions.
The IMPACT project aims to bring together the results of successfully completed
projects and promote them under one banner with the ultimate aim of spreading good
practice and innovative ICT tools to MVET providers.
