Publications and Results

The findings of CATEWE research will be presented in a final report by CATEWE partners to the European Commission and results will be disseminated through scientific and policy publications. In addition, it is intended that CATEWE will have a direct input into policy development on transitions through its contribution to the OECD’s Thematic Review of the Transition from Initial Education to Working Life, and through national and EU-level policy channels. It is hoped that an international conference with the participation of OECD, Eurostat and the relevant Directorate Generals will take place at the end of the research. The project will also develop a framework to facilitate the harmonisation of existing and future surveys on education to work transitions.
