The yearly BILT Advisory Committee meeting takes place at Omnia in Espoo, Finland
The Advisory Committee members expressed their commitment to support and guide the project team in implementing the BILT Agenda 2025. Going forward, a recommendation of the Committee was to keep in focus all four BILT themes: digitalization, greening, entrepreneurship, and international migration. Other recommendations included building stronger connections with TVET networks in the BILT regions, such as the ASEAN TVET Council, and developing synergies with other agencies working on the dual transition of greening and digitalization, such as Cedefop, ETF, and the African Union Development Agency. Additionally, the Committee proposed inviting more business representatives, from start-ups to big corporations, to international BILT events as they are key players in the formulation of the need for future skills.
