effectiveness and impact of current VET/HRD research and development is
can say that it is partly effective as we note:
same time, it is partly not effective, since:
awareness of and trust in research
raised by the research taken into consideration in policy design and implementation
demand for research related to developments at national level
to use available resources is still weak;
are not addressed, even if research has drawn attention to them: lifelong
learning perspective, need for demand driven approaches, need for local
and individual perspective, weak social partnership;
is no strategic investment intended to develop existing capacities.
issues should be taken into consideration for the progress and strengthening
of VET/HRD R&D:
that need to be addressed by VET/HRD R&D in the next period in Romania:
is a need for an explicit policy for research and development in VET/HRD,
including resource allocation
must be encouraged
activities must be organised at national, regional and sectoral level
capacity building is to be enhanced in order to use more resources in research
and increase efficiency.
