Supporting cooperation for innovation has always been at the core of Xarxa FP’s vision. The network promotes the exchange of knowledge and good practices in the field of VET and develops international strategic partnerships to stimulate the implementation of innovative pilot actions and projects among cities.
In the recent years EU cooperation in VET policies has been strengthened in the framework of the Copenhagen process and the recent Osnabrück declaration and has developed other related key initiatives like the European Skills Agenda and/or the European Vocational Skills Week. Xarxa FP, as the only existing European network of cities working on VET mobility and innovation, contributes with its expertise to the design of EU education mobility policies.
Mobility of VET students and staff has been Xarxa FP’s cornerstone since the network was created in 1999. In the view of becoming a reference organisation within the area of European VET mobility, Xarxa FP should enhance its attractiveness by improving both the quality and quantity of mobility projects in the field of VET.
