Triple-E Resources

This is about acquisition of skills!

In a large number of (often European funded) projects, qualitative content on our four skills have been developed. So useful and qualitative that it would be a pity to invent and rewrite them all over. The Triple E-dge partnership made a careful selection of this content (sometimes we did work on their development ourselves) and provides a clear introduction of why one should read this! As a reader you are kindly invited to also rate the usefulness of it, so we can publish an even better selection based on your feedback.
