Specifically, the workshop
- disseminates results of Cedefop's study , 'The use of tax incentives to support education and training in six selected Member States' (Germany, France, Ireland, Austria, the Netherlands and Finland);
- highlights good practice in the tax treatment of education and training;
- discusses research results on the impact tax systems have on education and training decisions and on different ways to encourage lifelong learning.
