Skillsea will foster cooperation on a European level between the industry, education and training providers and authorities to develop a strategy to make the education and training for maritime professionals futureproof, adaptable and attractive, to provide maritime professionals with the correct skills for the labour market and to ensure sustainability of the European maritime industry. Besides development of the strategy, the project will support implementation of the strategy and products developed during and after the lifetime of the project. Thereby, Skillsea will provide a concrete, sustainable solution for the qualitative and quantitative mismatch between demand for and supply of labour, will increase labour mobility within the sector (horizontal, vertical and geographical) and enhance attractiveness of the sector. Skillsea follows the approach of skills needs identification (current, medium term and long term), design and delivery of VET, the development of strategy as well as stakeholder mobilisation and awareness raising as sustainable implementation.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Erasmus+ programme under grant agreement 2018 – 3387/ 001- 001 (Project number 601186)
