University of Peloponnese | “Upskilling and Reskilling: Developing Skills for Effective Leadership”


The European Year of Skills, which started on 9 May and will run until 8 May 2024, aims to give new impetus to lifelong learning, enabling citizens and businesses to contribute to the green and digital transition by supporting innovation and competitiveness.

The Flagship Year aims to tackle skills shortages and strengthen the EU Skills Strategy, which will help reskill people with a focus on digital and green technology skills. It aims to promote investment in training and upskilling, enabling people to stay in their jobs or find new ones, to ensure the skills that meet the needs of employers, through close cooperation with social partners and businesses, to match people’s expectations and skills with labor market opportunities, in particular for the green and digital transition and economic recovery and finally to attract people from outside the EU with the required talent.

The topics to be discussed will focus on the reasons why investment in skills and training is necessary for everyone individually, but also for organizations, the economy and society in general, with a central theme of effective leadership.

The Seminar-Workshop is addressed to undergraduate and postgraduate students of the Departments of Informatics and Telecommunications, Administrative Science and Technology and Economics, to executives of companies and public organizations who are interested in developing leadership skills, and to the general public.
