On February 4, DG EAC and its seven key knowledge providers met in Brussels for the fourth time. Participants included representatives of the Network of Experts on the Social Dimension of Education and Training (NESET II, coordinated by PPMI), members of the European Expert Network on Economics of Education (EENEE), EUROSTAT, Eurydice, IEA, Joint Research Centre (JRC), and OECD.
The main aim of the meeting was to share information about ongoing projects, initiatives and discuss the cooperative actions. The European Commission's annual publication on education and training in the EU – Education and Training Monitor 2018 – will be a focal point of the on-going cooperation between the Directorate General for Education and Culture and key knowledge providers.
The presentations and discussions also touched upon the recent developments in IEA and OECD large scale studies (incl. ICCS, PIRLS, TIMSS, PISA, TALIS, PIAAC), the development of operational competency network and the self-reflection tool for digitally capable schools – SELFIE (by JRC).
