Project was based on the successfully finished CLOEMC I and II projects (PL/06/B/F/PP/174014, 2009-1-PL1-LEO05-05016) set of 13 already created manuals for Construction Managers’ Library.

As a result of the proposed project new postgraduate studies for construction managers were created forming common platform of managerial knowledge.

This Project based on European Directive nr 89/48/EWG on regulated professions in respect to scope of recognition, maintain of high standard in professional disciplines, promotion and certification of qualifications by international associations and organizations – from construction sector.
Description There was a need to create didactic system, in the form of Postgraduate study, as a follow-up activity, promoting recognition of qualifications and accreditation of construction managers in the European Union. Results from previous projects were put into practice by i.e. creation of Polish Association of Building Managers and its close cooperation with The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and The Association of European Building Surveyors and Construction Experts (AEEBC, creator of EURBE Card – European Building Expert), what assured European dimension of the project. Prepared didactic materials, methodology and organization scheme became a new tool allowing promotion, certification, comparison and recognition of construction engineers and managers competence on European, domestic and sector level. The postgraduate studies, when organised, will allow process of standardization (in all 15 countries associated in AEEBC, and other also) of certification process of engineers applying for the title of EurBE. Partner Universities, as well as CIOB and PSMB were responsible for preparation of project products which were checked and approved by professional associations. Results of the project improved didactic process and qualifications recognition of EU managers in construction.
