Launch event: EU Skills Profile Tool for Third Country Nationals
Experts, Commissioners, politicians and other stakeholders in the fields of education, employment and migration will gather on 19 and 20 June to launch the EU Skills Profile Tool for Third Country Nationals.
The tool is meant to support early identification of the skills of refugees, migrants and other third country nationals and has been developed by the Commission.
During the event there will be four interviews on the importance of skills identification for integration, in addition to a panel discussion and several speeches. Marianne Thyssen, Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility, and Dimitris Avramopoulos, Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship, will visit a reception centre and test the tool. Michel Servoz, Director-General of the Commission’s Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion will deliver the closing address.
