The EU-HCWM project aims to provide a unified approach to the development of National Occupational Standards and Vocational Educational Training Programmes for Healthcare Waste Management across EU Member States, through the development of a new healthcare waste management qualification framework, and e-learning platform.

The new qualification framework developed during the project duration, will enable the EU labour force in the sector to gain a standardised set of skills regardless of the member state in which they undertook the vocational training programme. This will ensure that future health-care waste managers will have genuine EU educational currency and therefore enabling greater mobility within the EU for this specific labour force.
