Innovation, technology and market developments have turned the world of work into a rapidly changing environment and training must keep pace with this reality. Education and training systems face the challenge of equipping a growing young workforce with the skills required by the jobs of the future, not to mention re-equipping the current workforce with the skills, including soft skills, needed to keep up with a changing world.
An estimated 10 million jobs with manufacturing organizations cannot be filled today due to a growing skills gap. Despite the high unemployment rate in many developed economies, companies are struggling to fill manufacturing jobs with the right talent.

In attempt to find an easy and visual way to collect good examples/practices, I have created a very simple site: http://www.eskillsinfo.eu/
The idea was to have an immediate understanding of what and where. As it is not commercial operation it may look to simple, but it is a start. The question would be how to make visible to Brussels all the activities on the fields without creating hundreds of depositories. This was my idea, actually I still believe on it. Do you have suggestions?
