RAINBOW - RELATING INTERNATIONAL QUALIFICATIONS TO THE EQF IN THE WELDING SECTOR
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.
