Certifications on SME and SMC
We all have agreed that educating consultants throughout Europe is a base. Since there must be some kind of certifications on these qualifications, in Basque Country we do have ESI (http://www.esi.es/), European Software Institute, created in 1993 by the European Commission with the support of the Basque Government, is now a Division of TECNALIA, one of the leading European research institutes.
It's first partner in Europe for the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute (SEI).
They've been certificating people's and civil servants knowledges on ITs for more than 10 years and, although it is a private institution, like I said, it's guaranteed by Basque Government.
We could work together to provide those certifications on SMC or SME.
