Objective of the project

SKYLA’s overall objective is to support public authorities in putting future skills at the centre of the twin transitions for a smarter, more resilient development, by boosting and adapting the role of VET in innovation ecosystems and smart specialisation strategies.

Partners cooperate at interregional level to reach the following specific goals:

  • encourage interregional learning on policy adaptation and modernisation required to adapt VET systems and facilities and integrate them into S3/S4 processes and innovation ecosystems;
  • understand how public policy can address these needs and challenges;
  • design, and initiate implementation of, policy improvements to integrate skills into the twin transition, with a new role for VET systems/facilities and better capacity among public authorities to implement approaches;
  • implement, extend and monitor policy improvements, using territorial resources.
