One key task of the national ReferNet teams is to inform Cedefop on all training policy-related initiatives and measures taken by countries against the background of European processes (such as the Copenhagen process) and objectives (such as ET 2020). The information provided in the individual country reports also goes into comprehensive synthesis reports, which are published by Cedefop every two to three years.
