CPD in Europe

During the period 2010-2012, Engineers Ireland led a European ‘Transfer of Innovation’ project.

The objective was to share the expertise of the Engineers Ireland Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Accredited Employer standard with four other European partners from Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. The vision for the project was to begin to create a European network for the CPD Employer standard.

The project was funded 75% by the EU Commission’s Leonardo da Vinci Lifelong Learning Programme and 25% by the participating partners in the project.

Following the success of the project, FEANI, the federation of professional engineers that unites national engineering associations from 32 European countries, representing the interests of over 3,5 million professional engineers in Europe, formally adopted CPD Accreditation for Employers as a pan-European objective.
