See how skills can be an indispensable part of our daily lives

EU funding initiatives like the European Social Fund Plus and Erasmus+, along with stakeholder initiatives like Pact of Skills, are transforming lives through reskilling and upskilling. All these efforts prepare people for new opportunities that match their talents and goals. Collaboration with social partners and companies ensures that skills match individual requirements, especially during green and digital transitions. Member states are also working to attract skilled workers and close skill gaps. 

Through EU funding, skill development shows its transformative power in helping people to achieve their goals and contribute to a more inclusive society.
