The overall objective for the project is to identify best practice for organisational learning in the European chemical industry. This is a sector where organisational learning plays an important role due to research-intensive production, global market competition, and the international inter-relationship of production sites. The project focuses on education and training as it is a precondition for organisational learning within companies and as education and training is influenced in its forms and its contents by ways of organisational learning. In order to achieve these objectives an empirical investigation will be carried out based on a theoretical framework and utilising both an open research methodology and a participative approach. As it can be assumed that there is not a single and universal 'recipe' for best practice a concept of intercultural exchange and integrated dissemination has to be developed which helps to present, discuss and evaluate the results of the empirical investigation. This will include participation by employers and employees, and experts and representatives from research institutions, companies, political organisations and the education and training sector.
