Summary of the project

This innovation transfer is implementing TermNet's terminology and ontology interoperability framework from Austria in Hungary, Spain, Romania and Ireland in an operating professional training environment (European Internal Financial Control Assessor) where barriers of language localization issues were identified and the international translation agreement with the copyright owner of the base terminological English language materials of COSO are granted for Hungarian, Spanish, German and Romanian languages.


The international development group of the European Internal Financial Control Assessor programme implemented under the LEONARDO DA VINCI Programme (HU/B/05/B/F/PP170013) will utilize the terminological knowledge engineering framework for achieving the following specific objectives:

  • Facilitating local training providers (trainers) and trainees in using their own languages based on multilingual ontology (min. 5 European languages),
  • Involving European Certification Association for providing online exams and certification programme in more local languages (min. 3 additional languages),
  • Supporting certification holders (assessors) and wider potential user communities by utilizing common knowledge (terminology) in different countries and working environments min. 10 European countries, min. 500 placements in enterprises),
  • Further developing multilingual e-content tools based on the terminology and ontology interoperability framework (online learning, certification and assessment portals)


The impacts of this innovation transfer are the wider European language and geographical coverage of information systems supporting the EU Certification processes relevant for Europe-wide approval of the Internal Financial Control Assessor diplomas, and the wider number of regional and sectoral communities directly participating in work-place based elearning and knowledge sharing of internal financial control best practices.



Work Programme

This innovation transfer is basically geographical as implementing TermNet's terminology and ontology interoperability framework from Austria in Hungary, Spain, Romania and Ireland. Other perspecive is that results of the former EQN LdV project - establishing the European Certificates Association - are also transfered for implementing the job-role and examination committees of the Internal Financial Control Assesor programme for certifying training bodies and exam tools in multilingual environment.


WPN 1: Coordination - Planning and Control of the Project

ISO 9001 compliant quality management procedures will be applied. This will include milestone reviews, deliverable reviews, project administration through a virtual office which allows access by EU officers, and full version control (and tracking of tasks) for all the deliverables.


WPN 2: Development - Adaptation of innovation

To cope with the diversity and complexity of lexicoterminological resources, data models, data structures and semantics, the Open standards strategy of ISO TC 37 will be followed, with the implementation of essential standards. The terminology and ontology interoperability model for Internal Financial Control Assessment is used to maintain multilingual skills-card, e-learning tools, self-assessment and exam portal.


WPN 3: Testing - Validation of innovation transfer

Partners will test the re-usability of data and interoperability of data structures in the multilingual online training environment. Traditional and on-line courses will be held for validation. Feedbacks will be used for content revision via Teamwork platform.


WPN 4: Dissemination - Local and international workshops and conferences

This work package will include the local and international dissemination and broad announcement with leaflets, papers, exhibitions. It is expected to distribute about 20000 leaflets through conferences and existing business associations in the partner countries.


WPN 5: Exploitation - Agreement with European Certificates Association

Partners will set up an agreement with European Certificates Association to offer the Europe wide certification. This also includes to integrate the new language options into the existing EU Certificates exam portals infrastructure. A training of trainers will create a critical mass of about 30 new trainers who can play the role of online tutors in the future.


WPN 6: Conference - Final International Conference

Partners will organize a final international conference for professional training institutions from Europe as a joint event with the European Certificates Association.
