This is the first European Business Forum on Vocational Training dedicated to "Challenges and trends in skills and career development of the European workforce". At the forum, Cedefop's Acting Director will take part in the final panel on implications for policy making.
The Forum is organised by DG Education and Culture of the European Commission. Companies, HR experts, researchers, providers of vocational training, national and EU policy makers, business associations, sector organisations and other stakeholders are invited to explore companies' approaches to skills development of both adult workers and young people, based on a survey of companies carried out specifically for this event.
The Forum will be an opportunity to exchange ideas and practices related to the challenges of skills, innovation and entrepreneurship.
