Euroguidance Cross Border Seminars (CBS) is an initiative started in 2005 by three Euroguidance centres (Austria, Czech Republic and Slovakia) who decided to organize an event dedicated to practitioners, experts and decision makers in the field of career guidance in order to discuss current trends and to share good practices an innovation in the field.
Today 11 European countries participate in this event: Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia and Slovakia. By rotation, each year one Euroguidance centre hosts the event and gathers the guidance community around a topic of interest at national and international level. The agenda of the CBS comprise plenary sessions and workshops held by experts from the 11 countries in order to create a friendly and practical framework for participants to exchange their professional experiences, find out about good practices from different countries, discuss new ideas, network together and discover the beauty and the culture of the country and the city where the CBS is taking place.
The theme of each CBS is analized through national surveys, collected yearly in a CBS compendium. The outcomes of the CBS are collected in a compendium of articles authored by the experts running the workshops.
