Leonardo da Vinci - The Lifelong Learning Program

The Lifelong Learning Program is a European program within the scope of Leonardo da Vinci set up to create and harmonize educational tools to support technical knowledge and consumer comprehension. A 2-year care labelling project was run, and it finished in July 2011.

Participating in this project are Belgium, France, Greece, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, and the co-ordinating country, the Czech Republic.

Specific educational tools on care labelling have been created, developed and translated for retailers and sales personnel, producers, dry cleaners, laboratories, teachers and institutions.

They are available now in Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek and Portuguese electronically. Smartphone applications (apps, android) will soon be developed.
