An international conference with interactive workshops, entitled Education, Employment, Europe is to be organised for researchers, policy makers and practitioners, specialised in employment and educational fields. Outcomes of EU-funded projects from both spheres are often not sufficiently recognized and applied while their results should interact and improve/shape the economy, especially the labour market. The researchers in the socio-economic area will be involved to drive their attention to emerging problems and focus their interests on the perspective of approaching 7 FP. Presentations from research project clusters are foreseen followed by interactive workshops to receive feedback from practitioners and formulate recommendations towards researchers themselves, policy makers, and the European Commission.
Workshops will be focused on:
(i) active ageing,
(ii) disabled in education and on the open labour market,
(iii) quality vs. inequality in education and on the labour market,
(iv) citizenship versus education and employment.
Target audience will consist of representatives of relevant authorities and education/social workers mainly of regional level, but also central and local levels. The participants will represent EU member states but also associated and candidate countries. Conference proceedings will be edited in printed version; special web page will be created, functioning as a repository of all relevant documents.
