Access to education and training

  • The education system has to be adapted to a growing access to an increasingly diversified and fast changing amount of knowledge.   The aim should be to give young people the capacity to learn.
  • Workers are called to constantly upskill, retrain, and adapt to emerging skill needs, given the fast-changing jobs landscape. Greater efforts are needed to promote participation in lifelong learning activities and investing in re-skilling and education of workers in order to help them adjust to new requirements and avoid having tens of millions of people unemployed.
  • A coherent tech/digital-literacy program is needed to avoid new divides, fragmentations, polarisation and isolation.
  • Digital competence developments are observed since very young age across Europe, mainly in family context and in an uneven and patchy way, depending mostly on the digital landscape available and on the digital knowledge in family.
  • EU's network of Digital Innovation Hubs could help developing local solutions in Europe for addressing training and developing partnerships for a safe and socially ethical AI development.
