Vocational Training in the European Community 1995. Annual Report.
European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training, Thessaloniki (Greece).
During 1995, the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (CEDEFOP) was moved from Berlin, Germany, to Thessaloniki, Greece. Despite the burdens of the move, progress was made in the following activities: publishing updated CEDEFOP monographs in a variety of official languages; creating a new network for research cooperation on trends in occupations and qualifications; and implementing CEDEFOP's Study Visits' Programme. Three new member states (Austria, Finland, and Sweden) and two cooperating countries (Iceland and Norway) were integrated into CEDEFOP's work program. Two conferences were held in Thessaloniki to identify CEDEFOP's future priority tasks. Although work in the context of CEDEFOP's efforts to support the social dialogue got off to a poor start, several studies were completed and initial proposals to the European confederations were made. CEDEFOP's 1995 budget appropriations amounted to 16.5 million ECU (European Currency Units), a 48.65% increase over 1994, and its total expenditures for 1995 amounted to 14.775 ECU, a 40.26% increase over 1994. Of those funds, 10.74% were spent on administration and 39.24% were spent on projects, research work, and studies. (Appended are an extract from the council regulation establishing CEDEFOP and lists of members of CEDEFOP's management board and staff and CEDEFOP publications that appeared in 1995.) (MN)
