The “Leonardo da Vinci” European program – a tool for SME’s consolidation in Romania – Sorin Ionescu

The “Leonardo da Vinci” European program (LVP) has been initiated and launched by European Union in 1994, as an European program for transnational cooperation in the field of labour vocational training.
European Commission coordinates and co-funds this program, that is operational starting with 1995 (phase I LVP, 1995 –1999). Consequence of the favourable results obtained and for assuring the continuance in articulating the initiatives of European countries in vocational training, the European Union decided to continue the LVP during 01 January 2000 – 31 December 2006 (phase II of LVP).
