EU Projects: Carein Project (Emotional Intelligence)

The Carein project was a Leonardo da Vinci Transfer of Innovation project approved in 2009 through the European Commission (DG Education and Culture) Lifelong Learning Programme. It ran from October 2009 until September 2011

CarEIn Project basing on, previously approved TREIN LdV Project, aims at elaborating a learning environment based on Web 2.0 which will help health and care assistance workers to acquire competences on EI in order to improve the quality of their daily activities and, as a consequence, to improve the quality of life of health and care sector beneficiaries.

The target groups of Carein project are:

Social care professionals (social assistants, psychologists, occupational therapists, carers, etc.) Health and Medical care professionals (doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, etc.), working in Social Care centres such as rehabilitation centres, day care centres or social institutions.

The final beneficiaries are all those groups suffering a progressive loss of their physical functionalities, and therefore needing social care in addition to the medical treatment. It would include, for instance, people suffering degenerative illness affecting their functional abilities or elder people.

NOTE: The Foundation has subsequently developed an interactive Emotional Intelligence Training Course that can be found at
