New Skills Agenda for Europe Welcomed by EESC

Print page

The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), an EU institution representing civil society, has welcomed the European Commission’s ‘New Skills Agenda for Europe’, and called for more innovation in solutions for education and skills development.

The EESC’s opinion on the major skills development strategy proposed by the European Commission, notes the rapid change that is occurring with the digitalisation of society, and highlights the need for continuous re-training to enable people to stay up-to-date with current and future workplace technologies. The opinion also calls for more funding to support the aims of the New Skills Agenda, from both EU and Member State sources.

More information can be found on the website of the EESC.
