Publisher's Note

This week the Commission adopted a revised framework for the Europass, a set of tools to allow people to showcase their skills and qualifications in any European country in a user-friendly way.

More than 60 million Europass CVs have been created since the Europass was established in 2005. Thousands of students have received Diploma and Certificate Supplements making their qualifications more readable and easily comparable abroad. The Europass is a success story in an area on which Europe's prosperity depends - the skills of its people.
