Event Details

Cedefop, together with the Swedish Presidency of the Council of the EU, is organising the 14th Cedefop Brussels seminar as a virtual event.

Organised in cooperation with the rotating EU Presidency, these seminars build on Cedefop’s research and analyses to address issues relevant to current European debates on vocational education and training (VET) and employment.

The 14th Brussels seminar will address the skills necessary to boost innovation, the role of vocational education and training (VET) and skills anticipation approaches to meet the goals of the European Green Deal (EGD) and of the Green Deal Industrial Plan.

The 14th Cedefop Brussels Seminar aims at addressing the two following questions:

  1. What are the expected skill needs relevant to green technological and social innovation and how can VET best address them?
  2. What is the role of skills governance and innovative skills anticipation in supporting policy-making to make the green transition happen?

The 14th Brussels seminar will present Cedefop research on trends and developments in skills and jobs for the green transition, and its work on skills anticipation approaches that facilitate the transition to the new ‘green’ paradigm in European economies and societies.

Cedefop experts and external experts will present, discuss and debate the interaction between VET and skills in the context of technological and social innovation, and the contribution of innovative skills anticipation and governance approaches.

The concept note and agenda are available here.
