Among other things, new partners from Central and Eastern Europe (Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria) were present for the first time, pointing the attention of the Federation towards the challenges of this region, namely towards Roma people and other heavily disadvantaged groups. A new project (Compcert) was discussed with the present members, with the objective to create a common framework for a transnational training programme for bilan de compétences counsellors.
