The final event of the project was held in Bilbao on Friday, March 17, 2023.

The whole partnership presented the outputs of the project, including the digital skills guide, the strategies and the ACSOL Toolkit, an online training toolbox to train workers in digital skills in two vulnerable sectors affected by the pandemic, social care and art, culture and entertainment.

The general director of Lanbide, Gloria Múgica, inaugurated in Bilbao an event in which the tool was presented, and in which the progress of the project has been realized in which the Trade Union Congress (United Kingdom), the universities of Exeter (United Kingdom), Milan Bicocca (Italy), West Timisoara (Romania) and Magdeburg (Germany), and the Basque company specialized in foresight and strategic studies Prospektiker.

As explained by Múgica, this project began in the spring of 2021 with a first phase in which a statistical analysis of the labour market and the job offers published online was carried out to understand the impact of the pandemic crisis on employment in the two sectors under study. In addition, companies in the sector and their workers were surveyed in order to assess the degree of digital transformation they were suffering. At a later stage, working groups composed by companies, training centres and public institutions were set up in all participating European regions to discuss opportunities, needs and risks on digital transformation and digital skills in order to develop the most appropriate training materials.

The online training toolbox (ACSOL Toolkit) aimed at workers in both sectors is also available to any citizen. The training units are available in 5 languages and access is free through the Lanbide website.
