MCE project preparatory meeting- 18 January 2022

On January 18th, 2022, the MCE consortium meet in preparation of the project kick-off. During this meeting, all partners were introduced and met each other.
MCE stands for Modular Continuing Higher Education by Micro-credentials (MCE). This project in line with the proposal of the council recommendations from the EU Commission aims at providing the opportunity, to each partner and associated institutions, to be pioneers in the sector of micro-credentials, playing a key role in their understanding and development in national and EU levels.  


Proposal for Council Recommendation on micro-credentials

Council Recommendation on micro-credentials
The Commission has recently published its proposal for a Council Recommendation on micro-credentials, as announced in the Skills Agenda and in the European Education Area Communication of 2020. The Commission proposal seeks to make micro-credentials work across institutions, businesses, sectors, and borders. To that end, Member States should agree on:

  • a common definition of micro-credentials;
  • standard elements for their description; and
  • key principles for their design and issuance.

The European approach to micro-credentials is a key flagship to achieving a European Education Area by 2025.

More can be read in the press release from 10 December 2021.
