The 4th Stakeholder Conference "Investing in People and Skills in the Danube Region: Towards a New Dynamic for Socio-Economic Development” aims at discussing current European growth and development policies, how effective approaches to skills and competences impact their success and what challenges they face with regard to education and training, labour market and civil society participation. Workshops on relevant topics such as quality and efficiency of education and training, educational outcomes, labour market policies and social inclusion will be held to exchange current policies and identify requirements and needs to face future challenges and developments. In this context participants are also invited to find new opportunities for wider cooperation and closer collaboration.
