Pact for Skills: launch of large-scale Skills Partnership in the space sector

On the 25th of April 2023, with the support of the Commission, a large-scale Skills Partnership for the space sector dedicated to data, services and applications has been launched.

The partnership aims to empower workers with the skills needed for the development of future innovations and to achieve the aims of the EU’s Space Strategy for Security and Defence.

In particular, the partnership will:

  • promote the collaboration between the space industry, training centres, academia and other partners
  • attract young professionals
  • develop new and existing regional initiatives and contribute to other training programmes such as the Copernicus Academies, Copernicus Relays and other activities performed under the CASSINI initiative

This new partnership complements the existing Skills Partnership on aerospace and defence.
