Western Balkans Platform on Education and Training

In cooperation with the Ministries of Education of the Western Balkans Six, the Commission launched the Western Balkans Platform on Education and Training on 7 March 2012. Its objectives are to support the transition for the candidate countries and to better prepare the potential candidates in the region for their eventual participation in European Union policies and programmes on education and training. The Ministerial Platform meetings, which convene the Ministers responsible for education in the region and their main staff, decide on spin-off activities and follow-up measures to be taken.

In 2017 and 2018 the Platform on Education and Training (DG EAC) and Steering Platform on Research and Innovation (DG R&I) were organised jointly (back to back). In 2020, a joint Ministerial Meeting of the Western Balkans Platforms on Education and Training & Research and Innovation brought together key stakeholders from the European Union and the Western Balkan region in an online exchange forum. During the meeting, Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, presents her vision and new narrative for the Western Balkans: the ‘Western Balkans Agenda on Innovation, Research, Education, Culture, Youth and Sport’, a comprehensive, long-term cooperation strategy of the EU and the Western Balkans.
