The European Training Foundation (ETF) is organising a conference in Turin on 21-22 November 2018, entitled "Skills for the future: managing transition" to explore how developing and transition countries can respond to the challenges of current global trends from a skills perspective. How do global forces interact with local realities and how does this affect the need for skills? How should governments, businesses, social partners, civil society, research institutions, communities and education and training providers work together to manage change? What skills policies work in different contexts?
Participants will identify ways to develop forward-looking training and labour policies in their countries, and will have the opportunity to share their views and work together to identify how the EU can support this transition through the work of the ETF.
