Lowri Evans, Director General of DG Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs will initiate the partnership. She will moderate a panel where high level representatives from industry will participate.
These representatives include industry, academia and authorities. They'll discuss a common European defence skills strategy and its contribution to the availability of advanced and rapidly changing technological skills in the defence industry.
The event will address:
- education and training for defence industrial skills
- EU programmes and initiatives
- the use of structural funds
These methods can be used to address skills at national and regional levels and to foster synergies with initiatives and instruments to benefit the sector.
