The current trends of disfavoring statistics for technological education in EU and USA, are not to be regarded as an issue of isolated origin and cause, but rather as a culminating sequence of consequences stemming from structural deficiencies in the career development, curriculum inadequacy and competency, along with a non efficient and rigid link between academic education and enterprise/industry. The hereby briefly outlined EUEDOS model (www.euedos.org - European University Enterprise/Education/Employability Databases Organization System), has been initially officially presented and proposed under the European University-Industry Network (www.eui- net.org). This preliminary study, introduces an integral 3-layer roadmap for implementing an effective and pragmatic delivery, of a technological model able to interleave and render an individual's employment and academic profile, as inter-nested to his/her life-through education. It can be readily applied as a complementary activity to standing policies and institutional structures. A robust technological framework is further introduced able to act as an effective roadmap for Life-Long-Learning activities, as well as sustain the accumulated wealth of the life-through experience assessed by the individual. On the technology framework aspect, this model is realized as a set of next-generation distributed repositories/depositories, nested under a flexible low cost grid (as based on common non-brand hardware platforms) for allowing the knowledge built-up on an inter-institutional cycle of sustainable cooperation. The emergence of thematic networks and "technology leagues" that should spring from such a fostered activity, will form the basis for the new enterprise model, expectedly a broader scheme of cooperation of experts focused towards project specific activities with innate potential for acute innovation generation. The paper will also provide a brief overview of deductions and directions after three years of renderin- - g the project's exploratory activities.
