This resource base is intended to offer a survey of research in vocational education and training (VET) and human resource development (HRD) across EU countries.
What are the patterns of HRD and VET research in Europe? How can we get an overall picture of these research activities across national systems? So far, the analysis has been concentrated on the European level, identifying research trends related to EU projects and European conferences.

Now an attempt has been made to map HRD and VET research across Europe, based on an analysis of 250 national institutions in 22 countries. This study is supported by the Cedefop European research overview (ERO) project and carried out by the Research Forum WIFO in collaboration with the ReferNet.
