projects. Furthermore, 10 projects have been financed from Phare funds,
5 projects from European Structural Funds, 29 projects from Leaonardo da

of VET, then development of modular curricula of vocational education and
training and new learning and teaching technologies, competence and skill
development, information technology (including e-learning development)
