The European Commission has launched a special ‘talent enhancement facility’ – the Talent Booster Mechanism, which aims to counteract the negative effects of demographic trends.

The initiative is the first key element of the European Year of Skills, which aims to generate a new impetus for re-skilling and up-skilling, offering solutions tailored to the differing requirements of the regions. 

Forty-six regions in the EU that currently are in a talent development trap have been identified. They are confronted with an increasing decline in the number of employees capable of working and a low percentage of individuals with tertiary education. This group of regions represents 16% of the total EU population. For Poland, this is an issue in the Łódzkie Province.

The second group is composed of 36 regions identified as being at risk of entering the talent development trap in the future. This cluster represents 13% of the EU population. This includes the following Polish regions: Warmińsko-Mazurskie, Podlaskie, Mazowieckie (excluding the Capital CIty region), Lubelskie, Świętokrzyskie, Podkarpackie, Opolskie. 

The Talent Booster Mechanism will support EU regions experiencing accelerated decline in the working-age population. Training and other activities will be organised to support the recruitment or retention of employees and the development of the skills and competences necessary to cope with the effects of demographic transition.
