​What is Europass?

Europass, managed by the European Commission, operates via an on-line platform and is a central source of information and free web-based tools to assist individuals with management of their careers and lifelong learning

The Europass initiative was established by the Decision 2241/2004/EC of the European Parliament and the Council in 2004 .   Its aim is to make a person's skills and qualifications clearly understood throughout Europe.​
