EMC and INCSMPS joined forces to share and promote the results of the Team2Share European strategic partnership project in the field of adult education



The Romanian partner organisations in the Team2Share project, European Media Connections (EMC, Calea Europeană) in coordination with the National Institute for Scientific Research in the Field of Labour and Social Protection (Incsmps ) organised on Thursday, August 31st, a multiplier event to present and promote the project rationale, its objectives and the results obtained.

The event, hosted at Grand Hotel Bucharest, focused on the teaching/learning methodology developed throughout the implementation period, in particular on its innovative character from the perspective of educational sciences and the digitalisation of the training process. The discussions approached the benefits of lifelong learning on mental growth and the accessibility of knowledge through digital apps beyond the formal training and mentoring environment in schools and similar institutions regardless of age.


Being the last multiplier event of the project, the partners emphasised the added value of the project results, namely the Training programme for teachers/mentors/trainers working with low-skilled or socially challenged adults and the Training programme for low-skilled adults seeking to acquire or improve the basic competences needed to navigate through daily life and to obtain labour market insertion, both being replicated on two state-of-the-art digital apps, firstly for the target group and secondly for the organisations, institutions and policymakers in the field of education, social protection and labour.


In addition, the discussions addressed the indirect economic impact of the project as the business environment, especially SMEs, could help integrate adults from the target group into the labour market, thus having a workforce for basic/essential tasks and providing these adults with a means to an end and also a starting point for further development.

Lastly, the organisers presented the Guidelines for Formative Monitoring and Assessment of Learning Outcomes, consisting of a collection of methods for formative performance monitoring, including numerous methods of performance assessment in various formats, aiming to increase performance motivation through targeted and helpful feedback. The Guidelines are easily accessible on the two digital apps.


As such, the project was greeted with enthusiasm by both representatives of the civil society and public institutions/authorities which offered feedback as to how it could be further implemented and promoted, at the same time expressing interest in collaborating with the organisations of the project.


The event organised by the Romanian partners targeted seniors, minority representatives, socially and economically challenged adults, adult education professionals and experts, teachers, trainers, psychologists, representatives of public institutions and authorities, as well as NGOs working in the field of education, social protection, migration, labour, business, and IT&C.

TRANSGAZ takes over today the operation of the National Gas Transmission System of the Republic of Moldova by its subsidiary, Vestmoldtransgaz



Today, the 19th of September 2023, SNTGN TRANSGAZ SA, by its subsidiary of the Republic of Moldova, Vestmoldtransgaz SRL (VMTG), the company which operates, maintains and dispatches the gas transmission pipeline Ungheni-Chisinau and is certified according to the ownership unbundling model, takes over the operation, maintenance, gas transmission and dispatching activities in the Republic of Moldova from Moldovatransgaz SRL, according to a press release issued to

On 4 September 2023, Vestmoldtransgaz signed the contract on the lease of the gas transmission networks of this country under which it will take over, starting with the 19th of September, the operation, maintenance, gas transmission and dispatching activities in the Republic of Moldova from the operator Moldovatransgaz SRL – a contract that was approved by the Energy Regulatory Authority of the Republic of Moldova.

„By taking over the operation, maintenance, gas transmission and dispatching activities from Moldovatransgaz, Vestmoldtransgaz will manage the entire gas infrastructure of the Republic of Moldova. The investments Transgaz made on the territory of Romania, the NTS developments in the North-Eastern part of the country: the Gas Pipeline OnestiGheraesti-Letcani, the upgrading of the compressor stations Silistea and Onesti 2, the construction of the compressor stations Onesti 1 and Gheraesti, the 2/2 Interconnection Iasi-Ungheni are strategic investments amounting to approximately EUR 430 million. These investments have created the conditions for diversifying the sources and routes of natural gas supply, increasing the degree of security of natural gas supply for this winter and for the coming years, as well as the possibility of extending the NTS of Moldova in order to connect households and industrial consumers that do not yet have access to these resources to the gas distribution networks to be developed later. Now, after having taken over the NTS operation, Vestmoldtransgaz is planning to reupdate the 10-Year NTS Development Plan, which will be published on the company’s website as soon as possible. Transgaz achieves growing international recognition and boosts the confidence of our investors, who are investors in a Romanian multinational company in the energy sector. I trust Transgaz’ and Vestmoldtransgaz’ teams and I am confident that the good practices that have turned our company into a leading company in Romania will be rapidly adopted and put in place in the Republic of Moldova, thus contributing to the increase in this country’s energy security”, said Ion Sterian, Transgaz’ Director General.

The designation of VMTG as sole operator of the gas transmission system of the Republic of Moldova is the consequence of Moldovatransgaz’ failure to meet the unbundling and certification requirements according to the Third EU Energy Package, of Directive 2009/72/EC concerning common rules for the internal market in electricity and of Law 108/27.05.2016.

By bringing to our country the work of the most important decision-making forum of the main European party, the EPP is sending a message of support for this part of the continent that has made great efforts in the context of the invasion of Russian armed forces in Ukraine,” said Nicolae Ciucă, in a press prelease sent by PNL.

The event will be attended by over 2,000 delegates from more than 40 countries, including all heads of state and government and EPP party chairpersons, along with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, European Parliament President Roberta Metsola, as well as European commissioners who are part of the European People’s Party political family.

“By organising this Congress, the PNL will provide a framework for pro-European debate. I am convinced that all the decisions we will make in Bucharest will contribute to winning the European Parliamentary elections, something that will strengthen the EPP as the main political force for the next 5 years,” stressed PNL MEP Siegfried Muresan, vice-president of the European People’s Party, according to the cited source.
