25.08.2022

Foundation for the Development of the Education System, WorldSkills Poland Office and the University of Gdańsk, invite you to the press conference "One year until EuroSkills 2023!". The event will take place on 5 September at 10:00 a.m. in the Library of the University of Gdańsk, 53 Wita Stwosza Street.

EuroSkills is a prestigious international competition organised across Europe since 2008. For the first time, Poland has been awarded the honour of organising this unique event known as the Skills Olympics. This biggest event in the history of education in Poland will be held in September 2023 at the AMBEREXPO Exhibition and Congress Centre.

The competition will feature 600 qualified young professionals under the age of 25, representing 31 countries. They will participate in 44 categories and demonstrations of various skills and professions. Around 100,000 visitors are expected from all over Europe, including many government delegations.

During the press conference, we will introduce the idea behind EuroSkills 2023 and present the schedule of preparations for the competition, which will be held in Gdańsk next year.

The press conference will be accompanied by the official opening of Erasmus+ InnHUB – an innovation centre which focuses on European educational programmes and the promotion of the Erasmus+ offer. The centre will support cooperation between Pomeranian universities, local government and companies to make optimal use of EU funds.

The conference will not only provide an opportunity to learn more about the potential of the EuroSkills competition but will also create a space for the exchange of experiences related to the development of the vocational education sector in Poland.

The conference will be broadcast live on the channels:
