This report is based on an external evaluation. It presents the evaluators main findings and recommendations as well as the Commissions conclusions and intended follow-up.

The implementation of Europass is good value for money. Its cost-effective implementation tools the network of National Europass Centres (NECs) and the Internet portal managed by Cedefop are appreciated by stakeholders and largely satisfy users, as explicitly confirmed through a specific survey.

The evaluation concludes that the Europass initiative is achieving its objectives as a mobility tool for citizens and is relevant to their needs, helping them to make their competences and qualifications easier to understand and more acceptable in both learning contexts and the labour market.
