GP: COMPETENCE - strengthening the knowledge of local management agencies in transport - Regional PDF Print E-mail

Short description


COMPETENCE aims to enhance the transport know-how of management agencies and their abilities to propose, manage and implement projects. 21 local/regional agencies of almost all European countries are actively involved and transfer their competences nationally. The project has three main tasks:

1) Design training and teaching materials and carry out national and international training sessions
2) Consolidation of know-how through the implementation of training case studies
3) Know-how transfer/dissemination

The approach foresees a two level training. First level: 19 partners from 14 European countries will be trained in 3 European training sessions (type “Train the trainer course”). These partners will act as trainers in their own countries to transfer the best bites of the European training contents to other interested agencies in their own language The curriculum covers various aspects of transport and energy savings, European policies / programmes, and didactics. It bases on a preliminary analysis of needs and demands.
All trainers for the European training sessions are experts with high level of practical experience.
COMPETENCE will achieve a critical mass for experience exchange and for change. A continuous quality control takes place with practitioners (trainers). All training material is freely available via the web site and the E-Campus.

Expected and/or acheived results

Project website which acts as information portal incl. download centre, partner search function, E-Campus, etc.

• Training and teaching materials free of charge for downloading from the project website in up to 12 languages.
• In 4 European Training Sessions (all together 18 days duration) 19 European Trainers will be trained who later
will act as trainers in their own countries.
• Several National Know How Transfer Activities in 14 European Countries performed by the trainers.
• 18 implemented and well documented training case studies (also available for downloading).

Lessons learnt

Although the project has not been completed it is possible to draw the following preliminary conclusions:

• The evaluation showed that the well balanced mix of presentations, discussion rounds, exercises in groups etc. was highly appreciated.
• The time for giving feedback on trainees’ ideas / presentations and for discussion rounds (e.g. arguments pro and con) within the training session should be sufficient and should not be underestimated.
• For the future use of materials and know how on national basis it is essential that the most important contents and results from the training sessions are available in national languages, free of charge, and easily accessible from one central location – preferable as downloads from the projects website.

With the support of:


STEER projects promote the more sustainable energy use in transport (i.e. increased energy efficiency, new and renewable fuel sources, and the take-up of alternatively propelled vehicles). The specific focus is on alternative vehicle propulsion, policy measures for the more efficient use of energy in transport, and strenghthening the knowledge of local management agencies in the transport field.
