Back to Overview

Research and development projects in the area of VET/HRD carried out in Poland are strongly related with the realisation of accepted strategies concerning the development of vocational lifelong education in connection with strategies of economy and labour market development. 

Among the projects contained in the ERO Base (67), 15 projects are individual research grants financed from the state budget by the Ministry of Science and Information Society Technologies (Ministerstwo Nauki i Informatyzacji - MNiI), whereas 2 projects are related to so called multi-year scientific projects. Furthermore, 10 projects have been financed from Phare funds, 5 projects from European Structural Funds, 29 projects from Leaonardo da Vinci, 3 projects from Socrates and the remaining 3 from other sources. 

The research issues are focused on the following problems: human resources development, identification of training needs analysis, quality assurance of VET, then development of modular curricula of vocational education and training and new learning and teaching technologies, competence and skill development, information technology (including e-learning development) and educational institution/enterprise. Research in other scientific areas has been carried out to a far smaller extent. It should be mentioned that each project is of an interdisciplinary character. 

The other group of projects concerns issues of vocational training. 

The projects indicated below are among the most important for Poland, because they are included in VET/HRD system solutions.
