- preparing the 2019 ReferNet work plan;
- reflecting and sharing experiences on the scope and process of the validation of ReferNet deliverables;
- focussing on Digitalisation and the future of work, through presentations from Cedefop and ReferNet partners;
- organising a Knowledge-sharing platform on VET funding, piloted by ReferNet partners;
- accommodating individual meetings for deeper cooperation among members and between members and Cedefop experts.
- Participants had an opportunity to exchange good practices of dissemination at a dedicated space for displaying their national publications, newsletters, videos, etc.
The event was linked to the European vocational skills week 2018 of which Cedefop was a partner.
