Discover the European Commission’s new Pact for Skills partnership
ECSO is proud to be a partner in the new partnership for skills in the digital ecosystem under the Pact for Skills, launched on the 18th July 2022 by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs.
This new partnership will enable the upskilling and reskilling of workers and attract more people to the digital industry as well as help people and businesses acquire necessary digital skills, which will contribute to the objectives of the digital and green transitions of Europe’s economy. It will focus first on improving the skills of the workforce of the partners of the digital sector. Partners will then develop common targets, for instance on the number of people to be reskilled and monitor future developments on upskilling and reskilling. This large-scale partnership was established with the support of EU associations, companies, organisations, trade unions, universities, training providers and national federations.
“We are very happy to be supporting this partnership as skills are a fundamental pillar of the digital ecosystem. In cybersecurity, in particular, the development of skills and education represents the fertilising ground for a strong, responsible, and resilient cybersecurity ecosystem in Europe. At ECSO, we look forward to supporting the large-scale partnership with our ongoing and future skills initiatives”, explains Nina Olesen, Head of sector (Applications & Human Factors).
