Technological change and automation are the largest challenges of our times, which may only be addressed by strengthening competitivity, as well as by innovation, which is its essential condition. Hungary must also adapt to global trends, this is the reason why an independent ministry has been established for the coordination of innovation activities. 

    Therefore, according to the set target, by 2020, Hungary intends to allocate at least 1.8 percent of the GDP for the purpose of research and development that has become a priority area in the Hungarian government structure. In order to have a coherent innovation and science policy, the previous fragmentation of the management of budgetary resources should be eliminated.

    Cedefop, together with the Bulgarian EU Presidency, organised a seminar on labour market and skills information systems for vocational education and training (VET) policies in Brussels on 26 June .

    This was the 5th Cedefop seminar in cooperation with the rotating EU Presidencies. These events build on Cedefop research and analysis and address issues relevant to European debates on VET and employment. Over 50 participants attended, including representatives from EU institutions (European Commission, European Parliament, European Economic and Social Committee), the Permanent Representations in Brussels and major private (IBM) and international organisations (OECD).
