Preparing for the European Year of Skills
It’s official! 2023 is the European Year of Skills, following the announcement by Commission President Ursula von der Leyen in her 2022 State of the Union address.
This will ensure that nobody is left behind and the economic recovery, as well as the green and digital transitions, are socially fair and just.
Having the relevant skills empowers people to successfully navigate labour market changes and to fully engage in society and democracy. A workforce with the skills that are in demand also contributes to sustainable growth, leads to more innovation and improves competitiveness.
