Skills for Industry High Level Conference

Upskilling and Reskilling in the Post-Covid Era Fostering New Services and Jobs Creation

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic is huge. Combined with the digital and green transitions, industry will undergo fundamental transformations. Last month, the Updated Industrial Strategy for Europe made clear that the pathways to the recovery are forcing governments and businesses to adapt the skills of the workforce to cope with a fast changing labour market.

New technologies are transforming the way people work and acquire new skills. They offer a great potential for the development of smart services as well as new and better jobs. In this context, there is a strong need to foster skills acquisition and promote the right to training for all. It is also crucial to launch large-scale demand-led upskilling and reskilling initiatives. Launched under the European Skills Agenda on 10 November 2020, the Pact for Skills is aiming at mobilising all stakeholders - industry, social partners, education and training providers, public authorities at all levels and the workers themselves - to take decisive action.
