Objectives: 

The project EDU-RAIL aims at reducing fragmentation of railway engineering and logistics vocational education and training programmes in the region. By reducing fragmentation of railway education through jointly developed regional specialisation modules the project contributes to the development and further integration of the Central Baltic labour market.

The project jointly develops aligned specialisation modules that take into account the needs of the regional labour market, including shared challenges of further integration with European railway system and joint regional aspects. The harmonised and modernised specialisation modules allow the railway institutions to better prepare the educate specialists for the regional employers need and demand in order to enable smooth cross-border rail transportation within the common transport area.
