#29 - Skills development around the EU: a true story

In this 29th episode of the Skills Factory podcast series, we deep-dive into skills development initiatives run by the EU in its neighbouring countries. While the European Year of Skills is moving at full speed, it is essential to stop and clarify how skills are contributing to creating a better planet.

What is Europe doing to make sure that investments in education are worth it, and that no one is left behind? Are initiatives promoting mobility to the benefit of all, sending countries included? To know more about this, and unpack the complexities of our fast-changing world, join this podcast conversation with Mathieu Bousquet, Acting Director at the European Commission's Directorate-General for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations.

This podcast episode will also tackle myths about initiatives and investments: is it true or false that the EU is investing more in non-EU countries? Are funds to Ukraine taken from funds allocated to other regions? Is it true that education can help shaping a country’s policies? So if you’re curious, start listening now and don’t stop until the very end!
