GOETE is now on Facebook! For those regulars to the platform, it will now be easy to follow up on the project's progress and connect to the research teams involved.

From Lisbon 2010 towards Europe 2020: EU education and training policies between continuity and change

In the past decade, educational research and policy at EU level are being used with reference to the Lisbon Strategy either affirming or criticising its objective of making Europe the most successful knowledge economy in the world and the policy priorities resulting from this. Since 2010 the Lisbon Strategy is history, not only because it was scheduled for the period from 2000 to 2010 but also because neither the overall objective nor the operative benchmarking indicators have been achieved. It needs to be said that – at latest with the mid-term reviews undertaken by the Commission - this was to be expected. So, what next?

GOETE has taken up its way in January with a public symposium and a first meeting of all partners. In this article we summarize what has happened since then.
