EU Green Week High level event: Skills needs in an evolving maritime green economy

Date: 
1 June, 2017
Location: 
Brussels, Belgium
Type of event: 

The morning event will highlight how the transition to a low-carbon economy is impacting on the workforce needs of the blue economy. If on one side many maritime sectors are looking more and more into green solutions which can deliver more and better jobs, on the other side the industry suffers from an insufficiency of professionals equipped with the skills and competences needed. First, the European Commission will present the initiatives taken so far to support both industry and education to overcome this challenge and to benefit as much as possible of this opportunity. Then representatives from industry, education and public authorities will discuss the main bottlenecks for the coming years and possible ways forward
