Cooperation with the European Training Foundation
The International Training Centre of the ILO and the European Training Foundation (ETF), an EU agency based in Turin, have been collaborating since the establishment of the ETF twenty years ago.
Collaboration has mainly consisted of exchange of expertise, joint delivery of training courses and workshops and publications in the field of labour market policies and skills development for Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Northern Africa.
On 7 August 2013, the Director of the Centre, Ms. Patricia O'Donovan, and the Director of the ETF, Ms. Madlen Serban, signed a Declaration of Intent. The Declaration will provide a framework to guide joint work between the two institutions in future years and it foresees a mechanism of regular planning and monitoring reviews.
