European Year of Skills

2023 - 2024

In October 2022, the Commission adopted its proposal to make 2023 the European Year of Skills, following an announcement by President Ursula von der Leyen in her 2022 State of the Union address. The European Year of Skills will aim to foster talent, improve qualifications, and acquire new skills. This will contribute to quality job creation, closing gaps and skills mismatches in the EU and empowering the workforce to realise the full potential of the digital and green transitions.

It aims to establish a closer cooperation and dialogue with social partners at company level, civil society entities and not-for-profit social service providers, as they know best what skills are needed in their industrial ecosystems. This should also allow the integration of more people into the labour market, in particular women, young people, persons with disabilities, people from disadvantaged and diverse backgrounds and displaced people including refugees from Ukraine.

Together with partners, FACE will be developing cooperation projects to contribute to the European Year of Skills in 2023-2024, including throughout the Large-scale Skills Partnership for the Cultural and Creative Industries ecosystem (CCI LSP).
