1st Forum on Dual Education in the Alpine Region

Meeting topic: 

Forum on Dual Education in the Alpine Region _ San Michele All'Adige on 9-10 October 2017. 
“What future for the dual system – useful further steps for the EUSALP- regions”

The Alpine Region is rich in experiences referred to dual education, especially in the VET sector. The recognition of competences is one of the key questions leading towards a future mutual recognition of professional qualifications.  How can we work together on these issues?  How can we best involve the key stakeholders of this sector in the EUSALP area? The Forum on Dual Education in the Alpine Region will offer the floor to representatives from politics, administration, education and businesses to share experiences, discuss best practice examples, start networking and shape future project ideas. 

The Forum on Dual Education in the Alpine Region is organized back to back with the EGTC Euregio Tyrol - South Tyrol Trentino and will consider the territory of the Euregio, Tyrol, South Tyrol and Trentino in the morning session and the whole Alpine Region in the afternoon session.

The activities organized by the Action Group 3 of EUSALP will continue on  October 10th, when the first Workshop of MountErasmus will take place in San Michele all'Adige. MountErasmus aims at the creation of a strong network among training institutions in agriculture and the alpine economy in order to start new collaborations, coin new project ideas, promote more mobility of students and staff.
