At the European Vocational Skills Week 2018, taking place in November in Vienna, the European Commission will again award examples of excellence in research in vocational education and training (VET) (website).


The VET Research Award aims to reward an outstanding VET research project, an individual researcher, or a research team who has made an outstanding contribution to innovative thinking in VET, including initial VET, career-long professional learning, adult learning or continuing VET. The European Research Network in Vocational Education and Training (VETNET) has been appointed to manage the call for proposals and the nomination process.

Researchers and other VET professionals are kindly invited to propose a project, a team or a person to be nominated for the VET Research Award by filling in this form

Deadline: 24 August 2018.

An Evaluation Committee, composed of experts of VETNET and international VET journals will evaluate the proposals. They will nominate two persons/teams/projects to the attention of the European Commission. The European Commission will organise a public voting in October. Nominees will be presented during the European Vocational Skills Week on 8 November, and the final winner will be formally announced on 9 November.

If you have any questions, please contact barbara.stalder@phbern.ch, chair of the Evaluation Committee.
