Capacity Building

Vienna Engineers Experts have delivered indoor training programmes in project management for private companies (e.g. METRO AG in Istanbul/Turkey, SES – Société de Satellites-ASTRA in Luxembourg) as well as for academics at the Technical University of Vienna and for the Chamber of Commerce of Lower Austria.

In PHARE – Support to the Introduction of Environmental Management and Auditing Systems in the Czech Republic, Vienna Engineers Experts supported the Ministry of Environment by being responsible for the whole training package. The trainings reached about 400 participants altogether, with 25 different courses delivered, including the "train the trainers" package. Vienna Engineers Experts were responsible for the total design, the development of the case studies, the manuals, the training executive manual and the implementation itself, with selection and evaluation of trainers, course organisation, tests and certification of participants. Consortium leader in this project was Pricewaterhouse Coopers.

Vienna Engineers Experts also participate in the EC-funded Lifelong Learning Programme, where the focus lies on vocational educational training. The company designs and implements courses and curricula in the following topics:

  • Regional development
  • Environmental management
  • Renewable energy and energy efficiency
  • Project management and financing
