France and Germany, over 25% indicated the y believe that the
education system is not equipping young people with the right skills
when entering the workforce. Concerning skills, the World Economic Forum looked at the top 10 skills needed for the people to thrive in the Fourth Industrial Revolution

collaborations should ideally also place emphasis on developing transversal and soft skills.
