Building Skills for the Future Economy. How Erasmus+is future-proofing employment by upskilling workforces and streamlining recognition of skills and qualifications

In our ErasmusDays webinar on 15 October 2020 (online from 10:30 – 12:00 CET), we will highlight several of the projects our organisation and network partners are involved in. These projects all contribute to a more skilled workforce and/or the recognition of skills across national borders (within and sometimes even beyond the EU). As the European Association of Development Agencies, we believe upskilling citizens from across Europe is key to ensure a thriving, resilient and sustainable European economy, now and in the years to come. We will present several projects: – IN4WOOD – U-Eco – OBEC – ALLVIEW – MindTheGaps.
