VNR: Vocational training, at the heart of the Lisbon Strategy
From 13 to 16 December 2004, European education and training experts will be meeting in Maastricht. The meeting, which is expected to be attended by education ministers and project coordinators from more than 30 countries, will include debates on the ways to reach the objectives of the Lisbon Strategy and to reinforce cooperation in the field of vocational education and training. Several weeks after the publication of the Kok mid-term report on the implementation of the Lisbon Strategy and the new lease on life it received from the Barroso Commission, the meeting in Maastricht is the perfect opportunity to evaluate the state of Europe’s education and training systems as well as to measure these systems’ contribution to the modernisation of the European socio-economic model.
