MATES kick-off meeting: Modern maritime technologies, do we have the skills?

Like everywhere else, world digitalization, high-tech equipment and low-carbon solutions are affecting the workplace of the maritime world. Preparing the workforce for such trends is crucial to ensure a competitive European maritime sector. But what will be the profiles needed for the jobs of tomorrow? How can we make sure that people are strongly qualified for the many attractive and high quality jobs European seas have to offer?

To address these questions the Commission has launched, as part of the New Skills Agenda, a new cooperation platform between several key stakeholders called Blueprint for skills cooperation.

Tha Marine Training e-Platform is one of the 17 partners of the MATES project on Maritime Alliance for fostering the European Blue economy through a Marine Technology Skilling Strategy
