The European Commission, under the Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, released a report providing an overview of the main outputs, results and impacts achieved by Blueprints such as METIS for sectoral cooperation on skills to date, as well as their current efforts to build synergies with the Pact for Skills and ensure sustainability.
Introduced in 2016 by the Skills Agenda for Europe, the Blueprints for sectoral cooperation on skills represent a flagship EU initiative to support skills development, upskilling and reskilling. The report showcases the progress made by 21 selected Blueprints that include businesses, trade unions, research institutions, education and training authorities, and public authorities to develop and implement strategies to address skills gaps in specific sectors or ecosystems.
The report notes the successes of METIS which include the strong cooperation between the project and other Blueprints to overcome common challenges and explore the potential for synergies. This is in addition to the relevance of METIS to the implementation of the European Chips Act by focusing on the skills and talent shortage in the semiconductor industry.
