BGFMA will host the Second Transnational DEFMA Project Meeting on 17th and 18th of May in Sofia. The Meeting will focus on reports about the implemented activities in the first semester of the project and will also draft the schedule for the second semester.

DEFMA “Digital and environmental skills in facilities management” project is under the ERASMUS + Program and aims to form a strategic partnership to modernize and enrich the current vocational educational and training of the facilities management workforce in Europe.

The specific objectives of the project are to:

  • Enhance labor market relevance of VET for facilities managers to address digital and “green” needs, by designing an innovative and comprehensive training course in environmental technologies and sustainability issues.
  • Introduce modern training delivery methods and innovative open access pedagogical resources, enabling learners to acquire and self – assess digital and environmental skills.
  • Facilitate mutual recognition of the developed learning outcomes and establish a framework towards an EU “green” qualification for facilities managers.

The duration of the Project is 30 months starting as of October 2016.

The DEFMA Project will produce an innovative and comprehensive training course, and will develop open access pedagogical resources in environmental technologies and sustainability issues.
