EU Pact for Skills: UNI Europa joins partnership

EU Pact for Skills: UNI Europa joins partnership

The EU recently launched its Pact for Skills, a large-scale skills partnership in the digital ecosystem. UNI Europa is one of the partners.

The final partnership document (see below) is supported by 58 associations, companies, VET providers, trade unions, universities, and national federations.

The digital ecosystem includes three main sub-sectors: information and communication technologies (ICT) manufacturing, ICT services (excluding telecommunications), and telecommunications.

Among the multiple challenges that the digital ecosystem needs to tackle, the digital skills partnership identified the following as being of utmost relevance and thus priorities for future activities:

  • Shortage of ICT specialists and other technology experts
  • Shortage of digital experts in traditional companies of all sizes and in all ecosystems
  • Fast pace of transformation of the industry and effect on jobs and skills
  • Lack of lifetime and gender balance
  • Cybersecurity
