The subject of the survey - awareness, attitudes, opinions and suggestions of stakeholders about existing professional and educational standards, the level of competence of graduates, requirements for sectoral qualifications frameworks.

Offers of all Ukrainian universities participants of the project, including NULES of Ukraine will be compiled and summarized to a single application. Project profiles must pass the agreement in consortium, and then agreed questionnaire should be forwarded stakeholders.

2. It is necessary to identify a list of organizations to which our University can apply for questioning.

If possible need to answer would be certified by the seal, organizations stamps or were printed on their letterhead (more answers, the more significant research).

3. Each university partner of the project by the end of October 2014, using paper and electronic versions of the directories of qualifying characteristics trades workers and occupations classifier should create a list of existing qualification characteristics related professions related to the environment, and "bank" of electronic copies these characteristics.

List of qualifying characteristics should include the name and characteristics and clear citation to the source where it is published.

4. Generate a list of existing industry standards of higher education, which in your opinion are correlated with environmental sciences for all educational levels, by whom and when approved standard, by whom and when published.
