The European Year of Skills initiative was introduced to raise awareness about the value of skills and the significance of continuous learning for personal growth, employability, and economic prosperity. In line with this initiative, the EIT Campus platform opens new avenues for professionals seeking to upskill and reskill, especially in the context of innovation, sustainability, and entrepreneurship.  

Let’s have a look at how the two initiatives work together and how they can help upskill professionals! 

Lifelong learning: why now? 

With the acceleration of green and digital transitions, the need for upskilling and reskilling professionals has never been more critical. The European Year of Skills emphasizes the importance of adapting skills to meet the demands of the labour market.  

In this regard, the European Union encourages professionals to continually invest in learning and acquiring new skills, as it can enhance their employability, contribute to economic growth, and foster their personal development. 

By offering a wide range of courses, the EIT Campus gives professionals the skills needed to build a sustainable and innovative future. The platform caters to diverse fields such as climate, food, urban mobility, raw materials and much more, fostering entrepreneurship and technological expertise. 

Through its programs, the EIT Campus enables professionals to adapt to emerging trends and leverage innovation, aligning with the objectives of the European Year of Skills to match individuals’ ambitions and abilities with job market prospects, particularly in the areas of green and digital transitions and economic revitalization.
