Large Scale and Regional Skills Partnerships under the Pact for Skills

Welcome to the Pact for Skills' dedicated page for Large-Scale and Regional Skills Partnerships

The priority of the Pact for Skills is to strengthen collective action on skills development by all stakeholders through skills partnerships.

At EU level, Large-Scale Skills partnerships (LSPs) set up a shared engagement model for collective action where major players in industrial ecosystems and value or supply chains, including associations, relevant public authorities and SMEs, commit to cooperate and invest to provide upskilling and reskilling opportunities for people of working age in the whole industrial ecosystem.

Regional Skills Partnerships (RSPs) are similar multi-stakeholder partnerships seeking to advance the Pact for Skills’ objectives at the regional level. RSPs can cover a region within a single Member State, ‘macro regions’ spanning across Member States that have a shared geographical or economic relationship, or can bring together different regions facing similar skills challenges on the regional level.

Learn more about the LSPs of the Pact for Skills in each of the 14 industrial ecosystems of the renewed EU Industrial Strategy below by clicking on each ecosystem.

Learn more about the Regional Skills Partnerships in the declarations at the bottom of this page.
