On 20 June the European Commission organised a high-level event to launch the New Skills Agenda for Europe to boost human capital, employability and competitiveness, adopted on 10 June 2016.
The actions of the New Skills Agenda focus on improving the quality and relevance of skills formation, making skills and qualifications more visible and comparable, as well as improving skills intelligence and information for better career choices.
The launch event gathered an audience from a wide spectrum of employment and education stakeholders and featured high-level speakers from European and international institutions. It was a highly interactive event offering opportunities to network and build partnerships for skills.
The high-level event generated a widespread activity on Twitter, which lasted for the whole event. Over 500 tweets were counted from over 70 accounts, contributing to a lively discussion. The #EUSkillsAgenda hashtag was trending on Twitter during almost all the event duration.
