RENOVA is a Leonardo da Vinci Transfer of Innovation project which belongs to the Lifelong Learning Programme, supporting participants in the acquisition and the use of skills and qualifications for professional development in the health management domain. RENOVA mainly addresses members of the nursing-practice community who want to develop organisational and managerial skills. The project prepares and deploys training silos organised in Poland and Romania, based on the transfer of French experience and expertise to facilitate face-to-face and eLearning sessions.

RENOVA is creating an instructional framework for this professional group that will enhance its labour mobility for its members as well as their professional development, committed as it is to develop professional skills according to the labour market needs as set out in 'New Skills for New Jobs'.

The Knowledge Society Challenge

Better trained personnel has emerged as one of the major challenges for the global knowledge society, and the solution for this is lifelong training. Professional activities are knowledge-intensive in a continuously changing Europe. The half-life period of knowledge keeps decreasing, so lifelong learning has become an integral part of work activities through continuous engagement in acquiring and applying knowledge and skills in the context of a current task at hand.

The new geographic boundaries of Europe impose a new union, a legislative harmonisation done for different cultural environments. The majority of work force migration is taking place for ‘low-level’ jobs, while the higher-value work experience is still in high demand but not available to persons coming from the new democracies.

The accent is therefore on the optimisation of the European Union through structural laws, but also on maintaining a cultural independence for each country. A relevant education is more important today than ever because today’s world demands a workforce that understands how to use technology as a crucial tool for productivity and creativity. These skills include “information reasoning”, a process in which reliable sources of information are identified, effectively accessed, understood, contextualised and communicated to colleagues.
