In November 2017 in Brussels, the key stakeholders of the New Education Forum (NEF): business community, trade unions, decision-makers, academia and research institutions at the European level discussed Smart Education indicators coming from new economic models of Smart Cities and Smart Regions and crucial VET promotion.

 

What: → NEF OUTCOMES 

Key messages of New Education Forum 2017 were:

We should start Innovation with Education Forum because everything starts with education” Jerzy Buzek opening New Education Forum 2017

I think that NEF platform is very important and I am very glad it didn’t stay in the “buble” of European Parliament but is also present in the European Regions” – Brando Benifei, European Parliament Member at the NEF 2017

Teachers have insufficient knowledge of the world of work” – Alan Sherry, Principal at the Glasgow Kelvin College

VET experience needs to be shared” said Uwe Combüchen, Director General of CEEMET at NEF 2017

Dana Carmen Bachmann: “graduate tracking is important to be aware what happens with graduates and to use this knowledge in career guidance.”

Youth need to have more blended models of learning so they are prepared for their jobs to change once they start their employment” said Montserrat Gomendio, Deputy Director for Education at OECD on NEF 2017

Learning itself should constitute a transversal competency” – Professor Stansislaw Dylak of UAM

Ellen Doherty of the General Teaching Council of Scotland: “The capacity of NEF is growing“.

I think that if we can meet year by year this shows that NEF Network is strong” summarized Michał Boni.
