The Task Force for Human Resources, Education, Training and Youth has produced a pre-publication report on "Networks and European training partnerships: COMETT UETPs. Realities and perspectives". The report analyses the concept of European training networks and partnerships and draws on the collective experience of the university/enterprise training partnership (UETP) network of the COMETT programme. The report contains: - A profile of COMETT II UETPs, their activities and structural organization; - Analysis of UETPs in the context of their local environment; - A discussion of the concepts of networking and European partnerships and analysis of how such networks develop. The report is intended as a reference document for both regional and sectoral UETPs. It proposes a number of analytical frameworks to help each UETP evaluate its performance within its specific environment.
