The opportunity for an Italian Skills Agenda is now!

To help repair the economic and social damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the European Commission, the European Parliament and EU leaders have agreed on a recovery plan that will lead the way out of the crisis and lay the foundations for a modern and more sustainable Europe. The EU’s long-term budget, coupled with NextGenerationEU, the temporary instrument designed to boost the recovery, will be the largest stimulus package ever financed through the EU budget. A total of €1.8 trillion will help rebuild a post-COVID-19 greener, more digital and more resilient Europe.

Following this stimulus, several organisations at national level developed targeted actions to support an effective implementation of the NextGenerationEU initiative.

EVTA and ENAIP NET, together with other European and Italian organisations, like Cedefop, ETF, Lifelong Learning Platform, INAPP, INDIRE, published a letter addressed to the Italian government to advocate the importance of investing in vocational training, upskilling and reskilling of the workforce and lifelong learning. The letter has been published on various national newspapers and press agencies, including Sole24Ore and Ansa.
