About the event

A networking event for potential Pact for Skills members
The Pact for Skills was launched in November 2020 by the European Commission as a shared engagement model for skills development in Europe aiming to maximise the impact of investing in upskilling and reskilling.
Since then, almost 1000 organisations, among them companies, national, regional, and local authorities, social partners, cross-industry and sectoral organisations, education and training providers, chambers of commerce and employment services, have joined the Pact and large-scale partnerships are to be found in all industrial ecosystems.

Join other like-minded organisations and become a member of the Pact too. The membership is free of charge and opens numerous collaboration opportunities with your colleagues across Europe.
This event is an opportunity for interested organisations and new members to learn more about the Pact, it’s benefits and activities. It is a great opportunity to meet colleagues from across Europe dealing with similar challenges and to join the forces in dealing with upskilling and reskilling European workforce. The event offers a platform for one-to-one or small format networking events to help join forces for upskilling and reskilling.
The event is structured in two parts:
  • In the morning, the agenda of the event foresees a high-level overview of the Pact for Skills and its wider policy context. It will cover cross-cutting topics relevant to a wide range of organisations interested in finding out more about the Pact for Skills. The plenary will aim to present the Pact, its aims and the pivotal role it plays in wider EU policy and highlight the benefits of becoming a member.
  • Attendees will also have the opportunity to engage with each other and with other key stakeholders (e.g. social partners, well established European Associations) in interactive sessions featuring speakers from the membership of the Pact for Skills, allowing them to share their experiences with non-members and encourage cooperation with a wide group of stakeholders and potential partners.
  • After the lunch break, attendees will become the main protagonists of this networking event. Through this website, participants will be able to read about other attendees, identify key potential peers for networking and organise one-to-one meetings. You will also be able to choose to attend short information sessions to learn more about aspects of the Pact that are of interest to you.
  • Attendees will also be able to meet the coordinators of the Large-scale Skills Partnerships developed under the Pact and learn about the initiatives launched in the different industrial ecosystems.
