TRANSVAL-EU: Validation of transversal skills across Europe is one of the largest policy experimentations in Europe for the validation of transversal skills acquired through non-formal and informal learning (VNFIL). Transversal skills are an implicit part of the existing validation and guidance processes: The aim of TRANSVAL-EU is to experiment on how to make those skills more explicit and to embed the lessons learned in validation and guidance provisions.  The innovative approach proposed by the project is tested in five pilot countries – Austria, Belgium, Italy, Lithuania and Poland.
