ETV4Innovation for Environmental technology verification


ETV4INNOVATION is a two-and-a-half-year long European Commission funded vocational education and training Strategic Partnership project under Erasmus+ programme. It has been designed with the aim to support the development and the implementation of an innovative practice and a new training path in the field of Environmental Technology Verification (ETV).

There is a very strong demand from buyers of innovative eco-technologies for performance guarantees. The Environmental Technology Verification statement offers the only internationally accepted guarantee of performance for any eco-technology. As the new ISO 14034:2016 standard, ETV can provide eco-technology developers with a real competitive edge for marketing their products.

As the ETV verification statement offers guarantees of the performance of eco-technologies, the process of obtaining ETV verification statements follows very strict guidelines and procedures. To obtain such statements rapidly and at the lowest cost, companies must meet the level of requirements of the ETV verification process at all phases of product development.

Main results

The ETV4INNOVATION partnership has defined for exemple the following specific objectives:

  • Identify the lack of knowledge in the organisations (SMEs) to be able to manage and bet on ETV, which incorporates green requirements in the development of new eco-technologies.
  • Design and develop a Joint Curriculum on ETV with the participation of stakeholders from the industry and experts from the green technologies topic, such as Verification Bodies, Clusters and Universities, and other with expertise in this eco-innovative verification (ETV).
  • Deliver the Joint Curriculum on E-learning platform Break borderlines among SMEs and large companies and experts in ETV, creating common procedures and skills.
  • Equipping entreprises with the right skills and knowledge for the ETV verification.
