About the Project

Within the framework of the project “NEWTON” – Network between Workers' Federations and their Training Organisations in Europe Now! – trade unions and their training institutions from five countries of the European Union initiated a structural dialogue about:

  1. employment and labour market policies and developments
  2. educational and skills policies
  3. possibilities and options to foster the renewed Lisbon-agenda for more and better jobs in Europe.

This was realised through four joint project meetings, a European conference and the initiation of a European Association for trade unions and their training organisations in Europe. The objective of the project was to create and maintain a discussion platform and a structured network for the exchange of experiences in the field of educational and skills policy as well as labour market mega-trends and developments.
