The 1st Steering Committee Meeting of the EDU-LAB Project has taken place on the 14th of March 2017 at the Landesmuseum Württemberg in Stuttgart.
The Committee Member identified existing synergies, defined issues to address and shared their motivation to participate in the project:
"We must look at the local circumstances, to see the local priorities. Have a look at the experiences, the existing models. To see what is there and how can it be improved. “How can we make it better?” Prof. Schuster, European Foundation for Education
"Institutes of higher education are disconnected from the labor market. The mission of the universities should be to educate the workforce for the labor market and the local economy, help students develop the skills that they need - a change of mentality is called for." Livia Ilie, Vice Rector for strategy, Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu
