The ComPM project


The European Commission puts great emphasis on better efficiency in European funds management and creation of a homogeneous structure for the majority of projects. It underlines the necessity of improving the level of professionalism in project management, as there is a lack of appropriated skills in project management. In fact, there has been an increasing demand for new qualifications for managing innovative projects carried out in international environments.
In order to tackle this gap, ComPM will adjust, refine and adapt the results of two previous Leonardo da Vinci projects:

  • ASTRA (2004-2007): a project dedicated to the preparation of two European methods of the managerial competence assessment of entrepreneurs and managers. The ICT tool developed in this project is innovative in the sense that there is a direct link between managerial competence assessment and a training plan tailored up to the needs of the tested individual.
  • EPMT (2005-2007): a project devoted to the development of a train−the−trainer program and training materials focusing on developing, improving or enhancing relevant skills of project managers. This program followed a training methodology based on a ration between the practice and theory of 80 to 20.
