If your network is very close in focus to other EERA networks, please identify what makesyour network distinctive.The research network on vocational education and training (VETNET) was launched atECER'96 in Sevilla. Since ECER'97 the VETNET network has served as the joint platformand umbrella network for European research in vocational education and training (VET).The VETNET network covers a broad range of research and development activities in VET.The VETNET board has defined seven main areas:1. Globalisation, VET Systems and Innovation2. Accreditation, Qualifications and Frameworks3. Work Based Learning, Apprenticeship and Re-Training4. Professionalisation, Competence Development and Life Long Learning5. Boundary Crossing, Transitions and Transfers6. Curriculum, Pedagogy and Learning Resources (including E-Learning)7. Cultural Diversity, Learners and VETThe field of VET-related research covers both initial VET and continuing vocational training,both school-based and workplace-based learning provisions as well as the development of pedagogic expertise for vocational and professional education.VETNET provides an open platform for basic (discipline-based) research that deals withsome aspects of VET as well as for more specialised (interdisciplinary) researchapproaches that are more closely involved in the development of VET systems. The topicsthat have been covered by VETNET are related to several thematic clusters such as:VET-related policy studies and cross-cultural comparisons between different VETsystems,studies on current developments in working life and in the labour markets (aspreconditions for the shaping of VET provisions),
studies on the uses of VET by diverse target groups and on the impact of trainingmeasures on the career development of the users,studies on the shaping of curricula and learning environments for VET andevaluation of educational impact of pilot projects.The objectives of the VETNET network in promoting a common European research cultureare(1) to promote the discussion and dissemination through mutual learning of research andthe use of research results;(2) to explore the relationship between research, policy and practice;(3) to foster the highest quality of research in the field of Vocational Education and Training;and(4) to encourage cooperation under VET researchers in the European research area andbeyond.The VETNET Convenor and the elected Co-Convenors form the Board of VETNET.
