The ESC-tension platform (www.esc-tension.eu) represents the first output of the project and all partners participate in its development contributing both at the definition of its structure and contents.
Available as a free, open-source, and multilingual version, the platform ensures access and ease of use of ESC evaluation, and implementation tools to HEIs and SSPs in Europe.
The platform provides technical, administrative, management, and operational resources to foster the implementation of the European Student Card. So, as a “One-stop Shop”, the platform offers a dual utility by meeting the needs of both Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and students.
It also fills the gaps by developing resources and tools to guide HEIs on how to adapt the local student charter and to manage student services on and off campus to ESC standards, considering the administrative and cultural peculiarities of the national context.
The platform can be useful for students to understand the benefits and functionality of the European Student Card and to provide access to the Portal that maps the services available through the ESC in all the HEIs adopting the ESC-tension tools.
