COMPETENCE - Strengthening the knowledge of local management agencies in the transport field (COMPETENCE)

Download PDFDownload PDF
COMPETENCE aimed and 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 were actively involved and transfered their competences nationally. COMPETENCE had 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 foresaw a two level training. First level: 18 partners from 14 European countries have been trained in 4 European training sessions (type "Train the trainer course"). These partners 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.


  • Project website which acts as information portal incl. download centre, partner search function, E-Campus, 20 implemented and well documented training case studies
  • Training and teaching materials for free downloading from the project website in up to 11 languages
  • 4 European Training Sessions (3 to 5 days duration each) by experts with high level of practical experience
  • 41 European Trainers have been trained who themselves act as trainers in their own countries
  • National Know How Transfer Activities in 14 European Countries performed by the trainers

Lessons learned

  • 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 the trainees' ideas / presentations and for discussion rounds (e.g. arguments pro and con) within the training session should be sufficient and shouldn't 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 are easily accessible from one central location preferably as downloads from the projects website
