series of online publications is now available on the WIFO site, called
"Issues of VET and HRD in Europe". These publications can be viewed on
page and also downloaded as PDF documents. They have been selected from
several resource bases maintained by WIFO in collaboration with European

publications are divided into two sections as follows:
you are interested in tracing the progress of European research activities
in VET and HRD, particularly trends in community development and thematic
profile, you can find various studies covering in total the period of 1995
to 2005. Lots of figures and analytical information on networks, partnerships,
conferences, papers and projects are included.
you are interested in following the discussions on European issues of VET
and HRD which were held at major European conferences (ECER/VETNET
and HRD Conference), you can find the proceedings of successive events
from 2002 to 2005. Attached is an index of about 80 authors, discussants
and presenters included in these proceedings - so you can look up quickly
what you or others have said at a particular event.
latest examples of both the analysis and the proceedings were already presented
in the first L&W Newsletter (see <http://www.news.wifo-gate.org>).
What the new publication series offers is a continuing insight in on-going
European research activities. These have so far been pursued with tremendous
drive but little self-reflection or systematic analysis. More analytical
reflection, however, is needed for further developing our shared research
in this direction have been taken or supported by several actors involved,
in particular Cedefop with its European Research Overview (ERO), VETNET
with its new home page and annual surveys of activity, and the University
Forum for HRD in cooperation with the EHRD Network. All these initiatives
and collaborative efforts have also been essential for producing the analyses
and proceedings compiled in the new publication series.
