eTEN Market validation project aimed to develop and test a European Skills Development Network (E*NET).
The main objectives of this market validation phase were to design and validate the feasibility of the technical, operational and organisational infrastructure for the European Skills Development Network, by evaluating the tools and services in three indicative ‘scenarios of use’ involving four pilot sites.
Drawing on the results of this market validation, the main outcome of the validation phase was to prepare an Action Plan for initial market deployment of COMPETENT. The project incorporated six sets of activities focusing on:
- adapting existing technology platforms and tools to the scenarios of use validated in the COMPETENT pilot sites;
- adapting the existing content models to these scenarios of use; integrating the tools, content models and services within the COMPETENT organisational structure;
- validating the platforms, tools and services in four main market pilots, each one representing an indicative scenario of use and market sector for COMPETENT;
- developing a business plan and roll out strategy; strengthening and expanding the partnership to enable the roll out strategy to proceed, subject to favourable validation outcomes.
