EURASHE works with several partners in more than 12 projects, focused on modernising PHE, as well as on research, innovation and development.



Driving European competitiveness with applied research in VET for SMEs AIRinVET aims to enhance the innovation and competitiveness of the European economy. Our focus is on the critical role of vocational education and training (VET) in research and development (R&D). We will identify VET centers involved in applied research (AR), conduct case studies, and develop tools that will help SMEs engage in applied research.
