SKILLFUL Workshop on Future scenarios on skills and professions in transport

11 September 2019

In a fast-changing world, which new skill requirements of workers at all levels in the transportation sector are needed to cope with the rise of new technologies? This event, organised at the VIAS Institute in Brussels on 24 September 2019, is designed to present results, conclusions and recommendations in terms of scenarios for the future jobs and best practices in transport.

The Transportation sector employs over 10 million persons in the EU today. At the same time, transport is a social sector that is rapidly developing, changing and being influenced to the maximum extent by the development of automation, electrification and greening of transport, among others, thus facing problems in staffing its several domains with appropriate and qualified personnel.

This fact makes the need for changes in training and education content, curricula, tools and methodologies absolutely imperative, incorporating lifelong learning aspects for the professionals in all transports areas.

The workshop on "Policies and Proposals for Regional, National and European measures uptake from the SKILLFUL project" will offer guidance on competences required by important game changers and paradigm shifters (such as electrification and greening of transport, automation, MaaS, etc.); and elaborate on key specifications and components of the curricula and training courses that will be needed to meet these competence requirements optimally.
