The 31st EfVET International Annual Conference 2022

The 31st EfVET International Annual Conference 2022

EfVET is pleased to announce that the registrations for its Annual Conference 2022 are officially opened. This year’s conference – which will take place from the 26th to the 29th of October 2022 in Kuopio, Finland – will be focusing on the theme “The Future Skills Revolution for VET and CVET in Europe”.

Twenty years ago, the Copenhagen Process opened a new era for vocational and professional education and training. In July 2020, the European Commission launched the new skills agenda as a follow up to the original Skills Agenda of 2016. It defines 12 actions for upskilling (improving existing skills) and reskilling (training in new skills) for the coming five years. EfVET is always in the forefront not just to support initiatives taken by the EC but also to ensure that member states and in particular training providers in VET and CVET are kept au courant with these developments. In addition, EfVET supports training providers to reflect on the need to update, re-write and connect with key stakeholders to ensure that skills acquired at School, College or Applied University levels are industry driven.

This is the opportunity for conference delegates to learn about interesting initiatives, colleges and project promoted by EfVET members. European project partners can use Roundtables to disseminate progress, results and products of their Transnational Transfer of Innovation; Development of Innovation and other European initiatives – a key to successful valorisation of project outcomes and sustainability.


Our Conference in Kuopio is going to be highly interactive, providing considerable opportunity to network and find new partnerships. By popular demand, the marketplace is providing delegates with a double forum session to meet prospective new partners in the promotion and implementation of transnational mobility, share ideas and create partnership.

The marketplace will give you the opportunity to network and share ideas with other conference members. During the session you will all have the opportunity to meet with other delegates to pitch potential project ideas. This will allow us to build new partnerships and networks to support the increasing need for VET to provide the new skills required for the labour Market.
