Digitalisation, climate change, migration and a continuous requirement for qualified skilled workers are creating major challenges for vocational education and training in European countries. They all face the task of developing attractive occupational profiles which offer good prospects for entry to the labour market. Transnational networking is a necessity in Europe and can also help build bridges in other regions of the world. But how can relevant innovative solutions be successfully shared, and how can we work together to create new approaches? The BILT project is making a contribution in this regard by acting as an innovation platform.
