EC Education, Training and Research Programmes: An Action Guide.
Preston, Jill
This book is intended to assist educational and research organizations and others interested in education/vocational training and/or research and development (R&D) in taking full advantage of the challenges and opportunities of membership in the European Community (EC). Discussed in Part 1 are various aspects of the policy context of Europeanization. Part 2, which is intended to provide a step-by-step guide to applying for EC funding, outlines the main EC education and vocational training programs. Part 3 contains a chapter discussing R&D cost sharing, contracted research, and benefits and costs of participating in R&D programs and a directory of the primary R&D programs in the EC. Discussed in Part 4 are the various organizational issues facing further and higher education (FHE) institutions as a result of EC membership. Part 5 contains seven case studies of good practices taken from FHE and the private sector, and Part 6 presents concluding observations on the challenges of the single European market for organizations in the United Kingdom. Appended are annotated lists of contact points for specific EC training and R&D programs and sources of general information on EC policies and programs and suggestions for finding partners for education/training and R&D programs.
