In 2015, Cedefop celebrates the 40th anniversary of its foundation – and the 20th of its relocation from Berlin to Thessaloniki. A series of events have been planned throughout the year to mark this milestone.
The celebrations will culminate in June, in Thessaloniki, with a conference linked to the annual Cedefop Governing Board meeting.
‘Old roots for new routes’ is the anniversary theme, which draws inspiration from the past to continue the work of improving vocational education and training (VET).
A special edition of Cedefop’s magazine Skillset and Match, in May, will explore VET’s accomplishments in the past 40 years and its future challenges.
We have also created a new visual identity which will be applied to all our material throughout 2015. The identity is based on the anniversary theme and the roots of European modern art - Bauhaus and constructivism of the early 20th century. Both art movements remain fresh and progressive, just like Cedefop!
