To enhance training in this methodology, ECO4VET project will develop new tools and educational materials. The project will analyze the ecodesign training needs, define the training path and the contents of the educational courses, develop and adapt the e-learning platform and carry out several pilot tests in different countries and languages.

The first phase of the project, which was carried out during its first 6 months, is nearly complete and, at this stage, the training needs have been analyzed, taking into account the current training programs existing in the partners’ countries.

Together with the completion of this phase, the second meeting of the project was celebrated, where 9 consortium partners have studied the work done until now and the tasks to develop from now on, like the training path definition depending on the student profile, the courses content and the e-learning platform.
