A new Europass platform has been launched. Europass is a set of online tools to help users communicate their skills, qualifications and experiences and manage their career in a fast-changing world.

The European Commission is taking a first step in delivering on the ambition of the Skills Agenda of making lifelong learning a reality for all with the launch of this platform.

The new Europass offers a range of online ‘e-Portfolio’ tools and information for people of all ages, at all stages of their lives, to manage their learning and career such as:

As part of the new Europass, the Commission has also worked with 18 countries to pilot Europass Digital Credentials, which are authentic, tamper-proof digital credentials (e.g. qualifications, diplomas, certificates). Europass Digital Credentials can support ‘paperless’ processes and easier recognition and understanding of qualifications across the EU.

The launch of the new platform marks a new chapter in the modernisation of EU tools for skills following the adoption of the Europass Decision in 2018 by the Council and Parliament.

The Commission will continue to work with the Member States, participating countries and labour market and education and training stakeholders to keep Europass fit for the future and develop its features, including the roll out of Europass Digital Credentials.
