Two members, Prof. Pablo Beneitone (University of Deusto, Bilbao) Prof. Ann Katherine Isaacs (University of Pisa / vice-chair Bologna Follow-up Group) were involved because of their expertise in developing credit systems and meta-profiling.

The EU expert team was coordinated by Prof. Robert Wagenaar, director of the International Tuning Academy of the University of Groningen and supported by Ingrid van der Meer, project manager of the same Academy.
