To celebrate its double jubilee – 40 years in existence, 20 years in Greece –, Cedefop is organising a conference under its anniversary motto Old roots for new routes. In line with this motto, the conference will look at how vocational education and training has developed into its present role and discuss its future orientations up to 2020. Cedefop’s own role at the interface between education and training and the labour market will also be up for discussion: how will the Centre contribute to modernising education and training systems and designing European policies? And how will it interact with its key stakeholders, namely the European Commission, EU Member States and social partners?
The conference will be opened by the European Commission’s Director General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, Michel Servoz.
