30.01.2019 - Education for the future through European funds
The Bucharest-Ilfov Regional Development Agency (ADRBI) and EURACTIV.ro organized the conference "Education to the Future of Power through European Funds. Information, Expertise, Experiences and Stories in the Project World ", on January 30, 2019, at the Intercontinental Hotel, Rhapsody Hall, Bucharest.
The event supported by ADR BI through Regio 2014-2020 was initiated by EURACTIV Romania as part of the EURACTIV network within the project "Spotlight on Cohesion Policy: putting Europe’s regions at the forefront", launched in March 2018. The initiative is implemented with the financial support of the DG REGIO through the call "Support for information actions on EU cohesion policy". The project aims to change the public discourse on cohesion policy, explaining its relevance to the poorer and richer regions, highlighting its impact on the quality of life of European citizens and supporting the European Commission's 10 priorities.
The purpose of this conference was to present important aspects of education (as a complex process of workforce training), one of the main pillars on which the future of a modern society is built. The speakers emphasized the need and impact of a modern educational infrastructure to increase the quality of the training process and reduce the dropout level, a matter of urgency in Romania. Also, education experts presented their views in order to adapt European education investments to the needs of the labor market.
