International cooperation between the initial VET providers very often is focused on the mobilities of students, teachers and trainers, development of the joint new training and /or study programmes and other issues. All these fields of cooperation are very important for improvement of quality and attractiveness of initial VET in the different countries. However, the potential benefits of such cooperation can remain very limited, if this cooperation does not entail methodical and holistic exchanges in the field of curriculum design by considering the comparative strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of curriculum design in the partners. 

Establishment and development of long term partnerships and networks of the initial VET institutions focused on the curriculum design in the different occupational fields presents by itself good opportunities to improve the contents of VET curricula and to make them more oriented to  the international labour market needs thus enhancing effective and beneficial international movement of students and graduates in the EU. Therefore the aim of EUROPARTNERSS project is to establish the partnership of initial VET institutions from Lithuania, Germany, Italy and Portugal focused on the intensive cooperation in designing and implementing of the initial VET curricula in the occupations of Florist Manager, Administrator of Hospitality Service, Paramedic and Fashion Shop Designer.
