The RAINBOW project is funded by EC Erasmus+ programme, under the Key Action 3, Support for Policy Reform and the European Policy tools. It replies to the guidelines related with Quality assurance at European level for enhanced transparency and recognition of skills and qualifications.


The project arises from the lack of formal procedures for a direct allocation of European Qualification Frameworks (EQF) levels to international qualifications and from the absence of agreed quality standards for awarding those qualifications. EQF is a translation grid which links countries qualification systems, acting as an essential tool to make qualification more readable and understandable across different countries.
