2nd ILO Skills Challenge Innovation Call: e-formality and skills development in Latin America and the Caribbean

05 May 2021

We are pleased to announce the launch of the 2nd ILO Skills Challenge Innovation Call. This year’s call is addressed to entities or organizations that, through the use of new technologies, facilitate the formalization of labour and economic units through skills development.

We are looking for solutions that will strengthen skills development and improve apprenticeship systems to reach those in the informal economy. More specifically, it is seeking innovative solutions to facilitating access to social protection, simplifying registration, improving access to finance, increasing productivity, supporting labour inspection, supporting law enforcement and giving a voice to those working in the informal economy.

The top two ideas will receive:

  • 30,000 USD and 20,000 USD, respectively, to implement the proposed solution.
  • Access to a six-month Innovation Lab
  • Access to an extended network of experts on skills development
  • Worldwide visibility

We invite you to consult our Participant guidelines and submit your solution on the ILO Innovation Platform by 15 June 2021 (midnight Geneva time). 

If you would like to have access to promotional materials to share the call on your platforms, please contact skills@ilo.org.
