Over a period of eight years, new innovative joint study/training programmes will be launched, exchanges of students, teachers and other professionals will be promoted, as well as the strengthening of the collaboration between youth organisations. The agreement will also encourage a policy dialogue on priority issues in the fields of higher education and vocational training.
