2023 will be the European Year of Skills as announced by EU President von der Leyen. This year the EU will focus on promoting the importance of creative skills for the renewal of our society and our planet. In addition, we all need to develop a shared understanding of what new competencies are needed to manage the complexity of cross-sector integration and drive the green transformation.

The #ECIS23 will discuss and deepen the re-skilling and up-skilling of European talents and professionals to meet the needs for the European Green Dealdigitalization and mitigating multiple crises.
