Dear Madam, Sir,

We would like to invite you for the final conference of COMPETING, with the theme ‘a big step forward in Inland Navigation Education and Training’. This conference takes place at STC Group in Rotterdam and will simultaneously be held online at 14 June as from 12.00 CET.

A quality line-up of international experts will address the outcomes of the COMPETING project from different perspectives and also celebrate the European cooperation in the field of inland waterway transport education and training.

After three and a half years of hard work, the end conference will be the place to be for those who would like to get up to speed with the end results, including the products which make this Erasmus+ Sector Skills Alliance project all the more interesting.

A consortium of eleven European inland navigation educational institutions and four social partners joined forces to work hard on the seven competency areas and its accompanying teaching materials, like course manuals and a European Training Record Book, both at operational and management level. The project has also yielded a well thought-off quality assurance system.

We plan to host a physical meeting at the headquarter of STC Group in Rotterdam, supported by live stream facilities.

For practical purposes we would like to ask you to fill in the registration form below.
