EARLALL Conference – Skills Adaptation/Anticipation and Labour Market Needs

Event Details

Experience in developing skills anticipation and adaptation strategies at regional and local level has raised numerous concerns and challenges that are worth sharing to facilitate “skills governance.” Education and training provision at regional level require a fast adaptation to the rapidly changing skill needs identified by labour market and civil society stakeholders. This conference will provide an open forum for European regions to present their experiences and the challenges that they face, and provide innovative solutions. The event will lead the way to launching a study visits programme within EARLALL member regions.
