Education and training in general are enabling Europe to become a knowledge-based society, particularly by improving employability. The need for appropriate training and skills has been underlined in the majority of EU employment policies, as in the future only those with appropriate knowledge and skills will flourish in the labour market.  This special-thematic issue focuses on the European Higher Education Area as a tool for EU integration with a particular emphasis on the EU labour market – this is also the main  topic in the project Erasmus+, Jean Monnet Chair, titled EU Integration: European HE Area and Labour Market (EU:HELM).
