In order to improve the competitiveness of the European textile and clothing market, it is essential to identify the key areas that need our attention in the training of both future and current professionals. 

The Vetrine study sheds light on these issues, using feedback from more than 500 textile and clothing professionals in 7 European countries. 

The VETRINE project will develop a tailor-made "Capacity Building Programme" based on the information gathered through the "VETRINE Study", which is one of the first deliverables of the project. The purpose of the study is to obtain an accurate and up-to-date picture of the status of the processes and actors involved in T&C in relation to their sustainability practices and to gain insight into their direction towards "greener" practices, and to use this up-to-date data and insight as a starting point from which to build the content of the capacity building programme. It also aims to raise awareness among stakeholders and establish a flow of information between VET institutions, higher education institutions and labour market representatives leading to a more sustainable T&C sector.

The study includes the results of focus groups, a report on raw materials prepared by KAUNO Technologijos Universitetas (Lithuania), an analysis of VET training protocols carried out by the partners AEG (Spain), "DIMITAR TALEV" (Bulgaria), CITEVE (Portugal), CITEVE (Portugal) and EUROTRAINING (Greece), and an analysis of national T&C markets and the prospects of applying sustainability concepts, which is the result of research by ATP (Portugal), CEDECS-TCBL (France), CHIMAR (Greece), CENTEXBEL (Belgium), PIRINTEX (Bulgaria), TEXFOR (Spain).

The VETRINE project has received funding from the European Union EACEA.A – Erasmus+, EU Solidarity Corps under Grant Agreement n. 101110642.
