VET and HRD research in European countries 



This section includes bibliographical details of the national reports referred to in both the Profile and the Overview and of further studies related to this resource base. 

National reports

The national reports, providing basic information on VET and HRD research in 25 European countries, were prepared by members of the Cedefop ReferNet, mainly in 2006, and subsequently published by Cedefop in the European Training Village. They first appeared in the Information Base of the European Research Overview (ERO Base), accessible for downloading via the search page ERO National Research Reports. They were also made available as online documents in Cedefop's bibliographical database VET-Bib, retrievable as a complete set via the search link ENRRs. Full details of the individual reports have been compiled, as part of this resource base, on a separate page:
