aims at creating an online platform that will centralise information about staff training events organised in Europe in order to provide easy access to the information. The platform will help Higher Education Institutions with the promotion of staff training events, it will help those organising job shadowing to find appropriate people and also enable staff to find the appropriate training or job shadowing they are looking for. The platform will also allow organisers to get feedback from the participants at their events.
