A new skills agenda for Europe

Postponed: Infosession on the Updated Skills Agenda

In light of the current COVID-19 concerns in Brussels, we regret to inform you that the infosession on the Skills Agenda for Europe will be postponed. We will communicate the new date as soon as possible.


The Skills Agenda for Europe needs an update. A first updated draft of this agenda will be presented on 18 March. Seeing that up- and re-skilling paired with the reduction of the skills gap are hot topics for all European regions, we would like to invite regional offices to an information session about this updated agenda. The event is a collaboration between VLEVA, the Flemish Permanent Representation to the EU and ERRIN. 

We will listen to the presentation of the new agenda with speakers from the European Commission DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion (DG EMPL) and DG Education, Youth, Sport and Culture (DG EAC).

This is a save-the-date. The final programme and location will follow as soon as possible.

About the Skills Agenda for Europe

In June 2016, the European Commission presented this skills agenda. It consisted of ten actions to support the EU in tackling skills challenges.

Four years later, in March 2020, the European and international context have changed dramatically: digitisation, more flexible work patterns and globalisation call for a renewed agenda. That update is now coming. The focus will be even more on (developing) workers' skills, tackling skills mismatches and modernising vocational training (VET). In addition, a number of recommendations are being developed for VET.
