Held every two years and organised by WorldSkills Europe together with 31 Member Countries, EuroSkills brings together hundreds of young professionals from countries across Europe to compete for the chance to become the Best in Europe in their chosen skill.

The tens of thousands of school-aged young people who visit will be encouraged to turn their passions into a profession.

EuroSkills Gdańsk 2023 will welcome 600 young professionals under the age of 25 from 31 countries to participate in competitions and demonstrations in 44 different skills and trades.
Competitors at EuroSkills represent the best of their peers nationally and are selected to compete at EuroSkills after taking part in national competitions held in WorldSkills Europe Member countries. At EuroSkills, Competitors must demonstrate technical abilities both individually and collectively to execute specific tasks for the skills they are studying and will perform in the future. EuroSkills Competitors are challenged to complete a test project or series of projects within strict time frames over the course of three days. The projects demand complex technical knowledge and capabilities that the young people are learning and mastering through their studies and work-place training.
Accompanying the 600+ Competitors at EuroSkills, will be 500+ Experts from industry and the education sector from across Europe.
WorldSkills Europe Experts are a critical part of the EuroSkills eco-system. Each of the 44 skills competitions at EuroSkills requires a dedicated team of specialist Experts, Workshop Managers and other volunteers in order to be held. WorldSkills Europe Experts represent their Member country, sharing their experience in a skill, trade, or technology.
