This video shows the round table of the Education, Youth and Culture Council which took place on 26 November 2009 in Brussels. This meeting was chaired by Jan Björklund, Swedish Minister of Education. One of the main items on the agenda was a debate on the digitisation of cultural content in Europe, in particular books, against the backdrop of the agreement in the USA on Google Books. Another point of discussion was what Member States and the EU can do to promote digitisation and how more material can be made available for free via the European digital library "Europeana". The EU Ministers adopted conclusions on professional development of teachers and school leaders. The conclusions aimed to create better opportunities for teachers and head teachers to take part in "mobility programmes" (exchanges) and to establish European networks for the exchange of knowledge and experience. The Council also discussed and adopted conclusions.
