NEMO’s Chair David Vuillaume joined on behalf of the network to ensure that the perspective of museums is fully represented in the manifesto and in the re- and upskilling of the European talent and workforce. The meeting participants got to evaluate the relevance of the main skills needs and objectives put forward in the draft Manifesto and whether organisations could commit and support the actions proposed. In the coming months the new draft of the manifesto will be publicly launched for endorsement.
The Pact for Skills was launched in 2020 by the European Commission as a shared engagement model for skills development in Europe. The aim is to support a fair and resilient recovery of the cultural and creative industries and to achieve the goals of the green and digital transformation as part of the EU strategies for industry and SMEs.
