Innovation partnership programme Skills supply and lifelong learning

Published

This innovation partnership programme is intended to strengthen and develop skills supply and lifelong learning. The starting point is industry demand, the need for new skills and better conditions for employees to transition or continue their occupational development.

The climate transition, digitalisation and better health will make higher demands on skills, and work tasks will change; this then requires lifelong learning. The innovation partnership programmes make it a joint responsibility to stimulate skills development and lifelong learning through mutually reinforcing actions, both private and public, aiming for a common package and a common objective. The programme will contribute to:

individuals wanting and being able to retrain and constantly develop so they are attractive in a labour market in change
companies being able to grow and develop in Sweden by attracting and employing the broad skills they need to be competitive in a global market, but also to conduct world-leading research and develop world-leading innovations.

Priority areas in Skills supply and lifelong learning

The partnership group members have given priority to the following areas for their work:

  • Integrated package for infrastructure for lifelong learning
  • Digital infrastructure for lifelong learning
  • Making skills and needs visible
  • Attitudes, incentives and environments for lifelong learning

  • Transitions, major establishments and recessions
  • Attracting, integrating and retaining skills

Working groups

The partnership groups also initiate working groups to work hands on, with the issues and challenges identified jointly through their priority areas. These working groups often contain a broader group of individuals, organisations and skills. The participants in the working groups are selected based on the group’s objective and what it is intended to solve or deliver. The working groups anchor their work regularly with the partnership group at partnership group meetings.
