DG EAC issued a press release regarding the Evaluation results of the Europass project, and acknowledging Cedefops work.
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. The implementation of Europass is good value for money.
The Europass portal has had more than 12 million visits since its launch in January 2005 and the trend is clearly upward, with almost 3 million visits in the first half of 2008. Surveys conducted for the evaluation have shown a high degree of user satisfaction.
All of this confirms the relevance of the service provided and the high quality of the portal, which is developed, hosted and managed by Cedefop.
