European Validation Festival

The European Commission informs that the “European Validation Festival” will take place on 14-15 June 2018 in Brussels, Belgium at the EGG, Rue Barastraat 175, 1070 Brussels.

The Festival will gather around 250 practitioners, experts, policy makers, and users from the worlds of employment, social partners, adult education and VET, youth, higher education, etc to showcase policies and practices, discuss the shape of validation of informal and non-formal learning in Europe, and reflect on the future.

The Festival is organised during two days in Brussels: The first day is built around an interactive marketplace with spotlight stands on regional, national, sectoral and European practices, as opportunities to meet, discuss, and learn with and from peers. Several thematic seminars will also take place. The second day will be a conference where the floor will be given to policy developers, validation practitioners and other actors.
