The recent financial crisis has been triggering high levels of youth unemployment in several countries within the European Union. As one reaction to the crisis, many policy makers and researchers have proposed a (re)enforcement of vocational training structures as a measure to facilitate the integration of young workers into the labour market. The main argument is that VET, and especially programmes involving a strong work-based component, increase the labour market attachment of young people and thereby enhance employment and wage prospects compared to more general schooling. Although the research field of the economics of VET has received an increasing amount of attention over the past years, many essential questions about the effectiveness and efficiency of VET remain an open issue of discussion. Therefore BIBB organizes this conference to bring together researchers from all fields of research on economics of VET and to discuss the most recent empirical and theoretical research results on this subject. We are honoured that the conference will benefit from the contributions of our keynote speakers Uschi Backes-Gellner (University of Zurich), Giorgio Brunello (University of Padova) and Andries de Grip (Research Centre for Education and the Labor Market (ROA) and Maastricht University). They will complement the presentations of various international researchers that were chosen from the scientific committee from all contributions submitted to the call for papers of the conference. Exemplary research questions that will be presented are: What medium to long-term benefits may firms and individuals have from participating in VET? How do labour market institutions and policy changes influence the training behaviour of firms and individuals in different countries? How do training markets react to exogenous shocks to the supply of and demand for qualifications? What can we learn from VET systems in other countries operating under different economic and institutional conditions?
