Brief Overview

Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices – Strategic Partnerships for vocational education and training – Development of Innovation

LEAMAN aims to create a framework that will result in better qualified professionals in the European leather and leather associated industries. Through the creation of a European Qualification Framework (EQF), the project aims to promote both lifelong learning and equal opportunities in the knowledge-based society, as well as the further integration of the European labour market for all relevant professionals, such as existing and potential managers in the leather industry.

LEAMAN addresses both technological and non-technological issues, from leather science to the application of new technologies, and from fundamental managerial skills, financial or project management skills, to issues regarding health and safety at the workplace, social responsibility or traceability in the leather value chain.
