The primary objective of this research was to bring together the work and experience of European economists who have contributed to the field of education and training. We aimed to exploit the wealth and diversity of European institutions and data to develop further an expertise in comparative analysis and a deeper understanding of the mechanisms which have shaped schooling and training systems, and labour market transitions (from school to work, and from job to job), somewhat differently across countries.
Transitions serves as a useful unifying theme for this research project as they link successive individual states over time: 1) school to school; 2) school to work; 3) work to work; and 4) work to inactivity. Transitions therefore describe the adjustments which occur as a result of economic growth, structural change and policy interventions. This research project examined schooling, training, and transitions at various points of an individual�s life cycle.
