Proceedings of the previous ECER VETNET papers, provided in collaboration between the VETNET Board and WIFO, are now available online for the years 1998 to 2007 (www.ecer-vetnet.wifo-gate.org). Alongside the annual presentation of papers, the proceedings include an updated index of the papers (present total 275), arranged by author, country and keyword, and a complete list of papers (author/ title/ year) for downloading. This new resource will help identify the growing store of knowledge emerging in European VET research.
