Introduction to the Article

Gergely’s article is a part of the Academic and Industry Paper titled: The Role of the Government in Education. His paper focuses on the dire need to reskill and upskill talent amidst today’s rapid technology developments, with a spotlight on Hungary. According to Cedefop, the European Union’s reference centre for vocational education and training, the share of the adult population with potential for upskilling and reskilling is estimated to range between 31.6% and 40.4% of the total adult population (1.7 to 2.2 million adults) based on a snapshot from 2016. The actual need today might be much higher and more severe for several reasons.

The question we need to ask today is not about if the State has to play an important role to tackle upskilling and reskilling, but rather the real question is how.
