Proud partner of Skills4Retail

Empowering Europe’s future retail workforce

The future of business training

As a future-facing digital agency Matrix Internet is proud to be a partner of Skills4Retail, a new Europe-wide training initiative funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ and Partnerships For Innovation.

The EU-funded programme is a skills strategy and vocational education and training (VET) programme, supporting growth and sustainability in retail and wholesale. The project is led by market and industry needs, bridging the growing digital skills gap in retail and equipping the EU workforce for a dynamic, sustainable future.

Launched in August 2023, Skills4Retail is led by a Consortium of 30 partners from 9 EU countries — uniting Europe’s leading educational institutions, industry leaders and innovative service providers. Together we’re developing and delivering a robust training initiative that meets the evolving digital demands of the retail and wholesale sectors.

A new generation of digital decision-makers

Skills4Retail responds to this urgent need by offering targeted training in sustainability and digital technologies, funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ and Partnerships For Innovation. We are committed to upskilling the workforce to navigate the new, tech-forward retail landscape, so businesses and people are equipped for resilience and growth in the post-Covid era.
