EuroSkills is the most widespread competition of professional excellence in Europe for young people under 25 held every two years in one of the 28 WorldSkills Europe member countries. The WorldSkills movement has existed for more than 70 years; however, competitions among European teams have been organized since 2008. The first European competition was held in Rotterdam, and the Swedish capital of Gothenburg became the host of the previous EuroSkills 2016.
The 2022 edition of EuroSkills will be held in Saint Petersburg. The Russian city’s bid was approved unanimously by representatives of 28 member countries during the WorldSkills Europe General Assembly in March 2018. Russia will take up the baton from Austria that will play host to the Competition in Graz in 2020.
