Please see below a warm welcome message from the present Coordination team members, the scientific coordinator, Dr Miroslav Beblavý, deputy scientific coordinator, Dr Dovilė Jonavičienė, administrative coordinator, Ms Justė Vežikauskaitė, and deputy administrative coordinator, Ms Deimantė Kazlauskaitė.
Education and training are the key contributors to competitiveness, employability, social inclusion and active citizenship and have long been at the top of the European political agenda. There is no doubt that widespread access to high-quality education and training drives economic growth, social cohesion, research and innovation and are vital for future prospects and personal development. With this in mind, and the challenges brought on by the global pandemic, it has become even more important to understand the economics of education and training, their role in the recovery and the necessary policy changes.
We would like to thank CEPS and the ifo Institute for their work thus far, and we are very excited to take over the coordination of EENEE in the 2021-2024 cycle. We do not doubt that the new cycle will bring innovative and future-looking deliverables, and we hope you will enjoy the new EENEE website, which offers even more functions than before. Our dedicated team, and the Network experts, are motivated to closely work with the European Commission and provide high-quality scientific advice through the upcoming deliverables.
Thank you for your patience during this transition period and while the new website is being rolled out. Please make sure to keep an eye out for the latest news and upcoming reports.
If you ever have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact the Coordination team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
