Alliances for Innovation aim to strengthen Europe’s innovation capacity by boosting innovation through cooperation and flow of knowledge among higher education (HE), vocational education and training (both initial and continuous – VET), and the broader socio-economic environment, including research.
Additionally, they aim to boost the provision of new skills and address skills mismatches by designing and creating new curricula in Higher Education and VET and implementing a set of sectoral or cross-sectoral activities. About changing job profiles, the focus should be on digital and green skills.
