In partnership with the European Commission, and the European Training Foundation (ETF)

In a globalized world, where skills know no borders, how can education and training providers respond to changing skills demands? In the second session on this subject, a panel will ask how international standards and requirements influence national education and training provisions. They will discuss also what kind of cooperation and coordination mechanisms will be required in the future, including an assessment of how vocational education and training providers can improve dialogue with national and international employers.
