SkillSea is proud to be part of Business2Sea, an international event dedicated to facilitate interaction among people and organizations and to promote projects and businesses within the marine economy. On Monday November 16 SkillSea is part of the virtual conference session 'Towards a pact for skills in the maritime industry'
Business2Sea is an event organized by Fórum Oceano, one of the driving forces of the Portuguese maritime cluster, togehter with Spanish Cetmar foundation, that works to improve the marine environment, its resources and all the sectors involved.
The conference session will present how skill requirements in the blue economy will likely change in the future as a result of emerging trends such as digitalisation, the rising demand for more sustainable practices and the adoption of new technologies.
Framing the session, the Pact for skills of the European Skills Agenda will be presented as a new engagement model to encompass efforts from Industry, public and private employers, social partners, education and training providers and employment agencies.
The session will also showcase the outcomes and proposals of complementary projects focusing key sectors such as shipbuilding, blue renewable energy and maritime transport. It will launch a debate on the needs for reskilling and upskilling activities to move in a timely way towards a more efficient and sustainable future.
For this event our Italian partner ForMare collaborated with the colleague's of Project MATES. Buisness2Sea is a local event for the European Vocational Skills Week #EVSW2020
