The international advisory committee of the International Project on Technical and Vocational Education (UNEVOC) held its second session in Paris in December 1994. Nine advisory committee members and observers from the United Nations' specialized, intergovernmental, and nongovernmental organizations reviewed the major UNEVOC project activities undertaken in 1994 and discussed possible activities for 1995. Special attention was paid to the following: meetings/consultations/workshops held in 1993-1994; publications issued in 1993-1994; and activities focusing on establishing/improving technical cooperation promoting UNEVOC activities. In view of the project's limited financial resources, it was decided to confine activities to three main areas: fostering international exchange of experiences, strengthening national research and development capabilities, and facilitating access to databases/documentation. It was also agreed that the established network of UNEVOC centers and associate centers should be expanded and improved (to date, 90 countries have nominated more than 100 institutions for inclusion in the networks) and that the centers should become more action oriented and more involved in national and subregional training activities and seminars rather than restricting their activities solely to exchange of information. (Appended are the meeting agenda and a list of participants' names/addresses. Both French and English versions of the report are included.) (MN)
