The French Presidency organises an international conference entitled Indicators for international comparisons on 13/14 November 2008 in Nice.
The conference will focus on the strengths and limits of indicators, their use in decision-making and research, and their improvement and further development, both at national and international levels.
Three themes will be discussed in separate parallel workshops:
- International comparison of compulsory education
- Higher education: type and ranking of higher education establishments
- Which indicators for education and vocational training?
Dr. Katja Nestler and Mr. Alex Stimpson represented Cedefop in the committee for the third workshop.
