Cedefop organised its annual information event for the academic community of its host city, Thessaloniki, in cooperation with the International Hellenic University and Europe Direct of Central Makedonia.
The event focused on socio-economic challenges and trends and their implications for job demands and education and training policy, skills needs and skills mismatches and EU policies and tools to improve the quality and relevance of VET (key competences, learning outcomes, EQF etc.).
It also included a hands-on session on Europass and a presentation of the European Union's Lifelong Learning Programme, especially Erasmus.
The event was attended by well over 200 students and professors of the International Hellenic University as well as the two Thessaloniki universities and other institutions.
