Euroskills Competitions Working Group meets in Poland



Members of the WorldSkills Europe Competitions Working Group, whose focus is on improving the quality and delivery of skills competitions featured at EuroSkills, met in Warsaw last week.


Representatives from Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Poland, Slovenia and Sweden attended the meeting, including WorldSkills Europe Board Members Patrik Svensson and Guillaume Suteau, and WorldSkills Europe Secretariat team members Eugene Incerti (Director of Competitions and Operations) and Zsófia Zsisár (Director of Sponsorship and Partnership).

The meeting was arranged prior to Poland's decision to bid to host the EuroSkills Competition 2023, which was announced in March, but became all the more fitting and timely as a result of the decision. The purpose of the meeting was to continue discussions about technical and operational matters relating to the EuroSkills Competition 2023.

WorldSkills Europe would like to thank WorldSkills Poland, particularly PaweĊ‚ Poszytek (Official Delegate) and Izabela Laskowska (Technical Delegate), for hosting the Competitions Working Group meeting.

WorldSkills Poland’s application to host the EuroSkills Competition 2023 will be ratified by the WorldSkills Europe General Assembly at its annual meeting in June 2022.

The exact dates and a city of the relocated EuroSkills Competition 2023 are still to be confirmed. Further details will be released when available.
