This report attempts to identify and structure the focuses for VET Research in a geographical/political area several times the size of the EU at national (e.g. USA, Japan, China, Russia, Switzerland, Brazil, Argentina, Canada, Uruguay, Australia, Turkey, etc.), regional (e.g. MERCOSUR) and international level (scientific societies: International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA), international organisations: ILO, OECD, UNES€CO, World Bank). It is an exercise reminiscent of trying to square a circle, on account of: Thus in an initial drive to establish some lines of demarcation an attempt was made to identify important institutions, networks and research results. For the countries, regions and international organisations listed above, this was done at various levels. For the People's Republic of China and Canada, as well as for South America and the IEA, primary analyses were conducted. For the remaining countries and institutions, the inventory of useable resources for VET Research (research results, data bases, thematic and other networks, information on classification systems, etc.) was the main source. Was it possible to identify any global priorities? Generally speaking, research appears to be concentrating more heavily on the interdependencies between economic development, the needs of the labour market and vocational€education. Purely academic vocational education came in for criticism (cf. example of South America), and hopes are being placed in the results of research oriented towards the needs of the labour market. Besides this priority, which is based more on a change of paradigm, the focus of national or regional activities is obviously "pragmatic", policy- oriented research related to the as-sessment or development of available or planned national system structures. Curriculum research as well as teaching, methodology and media were all priorities. Thematic networks are commonly promoted and a wide range of information (databases, research results, etc.) provided. Co-operation and the possibility of drawing on other people's experience are very valuable resources when it comes to promoting and developing ones own national vocational education system. Even the international organisations (particularly the ILO, OECD and UNEVOC) depend on information, documentation and co- operation.
