This resource base sets out to present a European landscape of national research in vocational education and training (VET) and human resource development (HRD), covering 25 EU countries. It offers a profile of national research, related to selected activities, in comparison between the countries.

This comparative profile is a secondary analysis of national reports which were prepared by members of the Cedefop ReferNet in 2006 and subsequently published by Cedefop in the European Training Village.
