It is a well-known fact, nowadays, that Europe is undergoing major transformations since knowledge-based employment and the innovation it initiates constitute its most invaluable attributes in contemporary world economy. The quality of European education can be depicted in the efficiency of its training systems which include both educational and training schemes pertaining to European Commission key activities.
