• Online open access Painting Platform
    A Platform created by the trade for the trade

In the context of the Erasmus+ project InPaint co-funded by the EU, an online open access Platform has been created as one of the main results. The In Paint Platform is the first European Open Access Portal entirely dedicated to the Painting and Decorating Sector. This collaborative and interactive concept aims at gathering all the existing and useful tools and resources for the Painting and Decorating Stakeholders, directly involving the users to share knowledge, training, innovation and skills, in an evolving process for creating best practices and fostering inspiration.

EPP is involved in the management of this tool, committed in updating all the contents periodically, in order to provide an efficient service to the Painting sector.

  • Information and Communication

Publication of magazines, newsletters and articles.

  • Projects

In order to meet its goals, EPP is involved as partner in European projects dealing with skills/competences, vocational training, mobility of apprentices, tutorship, research and innovation.
