USR Veneto represents one of the regional branches of the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research. USRV is an autonomous public body performing different types of administrative activities. It is divided into 3 departments performing tasks at regional level and 5 local branches.
USRV was involved in various projects funded by the Leonardo da Vinci and Lifelong Learning Programs as well as by other EU institutions aimed at investigating possible strategies for supporting transparency, readability and comparability of qualifications, validation of learning outcomes, recognition of certifications and allocation of credits. Some of these projects dealt with ICT and multimedia tools targeted to improve learners’ competences and prepare them to better face working environments. Many projects focused on European frameworks and the design of innovative tools and mechanisms to allocate ECVET points and enable the bridging between ECTS and ECVET.
