More and more companies are complaining about the lack of qualified skilled workers. This shortage will increase considerably in the future. For demographic reasons, the number of people leaving the labour force for reasons of age will in future be significantly higher than the number of younger people growing into working life. Significant improvements in skills and coping with the growing shortage of skilled workers must be given the highest political priority.
Against the background of these challenges, a team of experts from Finland, Germany, Italy, Austria and Poland together with SMEs has developed and successfully tested in practice instruments and measures for the identification of competences, qualification and integration into working life of foreigners.
People with a history of immigration and flight can make a decisive contribution to mastering these challenges. How can refugees be supported on their way to becoming skilled workers? Which instruments and support measures are particularly effective and have proven themselves in practice? Which strategies are being pursued in other European countries?
The conference provides concrete answers to these and other questions.
