Abstract

The Thematic Network project "Forum for European Research into Vocational Education and Training" was established as a network of research institutions to seek a new approach to transnational, European research in vocational education and training and to offer systematically rigorous definitions of different approaches to assist researchers in the pursuit of knowledge. Fourteen countries were represented in the Forum and its members included respected researchers both nationally and internationally.
The main aim of the thematic network was the establishment of the European dimension - in terms of contents and methodologies - within the sphere of vocational education and training (VET). The European dimension needs to embrace the traditional values of European societies embodied in the diversity of traditions, institutions, legislation and cultures that influence vocational education and training in the European Union. The project aimed to produce analysis with a high degree of relevance on important EU and national policy issues in the field of VET.
