Education has a hugely important role to play in helping tackling climate change and driving the transition to a green energy continent. Challenges in transition develop rapidly, with a high demand for digital and green.
SEED appreciates the need to distil relevant information that is useful for the Centres of Vocational Excellence about issues of skills supply and demand. Therefore, throughout the project’s lifecycle the main focus will be on:
Developing Future-Ready Skills: We focus on identifying the essential skills and competencies needed in the fossil-free energy sector. From green technologies to digital proficiency and soft skills, our goal is to ensure learners and professionals are well-prepared for the challenges and opportunities of a sustainable energy future.
Fostering Regional Innovation: Recognizing the diverse needs of different European regions, SEED aims to create tailored solutions that resonate with local challenges. By enhancing regional innovation and skills ecosystems, we aim to set the path to make each region a hub of sustainable energy expertise through the development of each CoVE.
The transition to sustainable energy is not just an environmental imperative but also a significant economic and social opportunity. SEED addresses several challenges:
The Centres of Vocational Excellence (CoVEs) in the European Union aim to drive innovation and excellence in vocational education and training, by bringing together a wide range of local, regional and national partners from different countries such as:
Being closely linked to regional development, innovation and smart specialisation strategies, allow CoVEs to identify new synergies and enhance networking, to develop a greater response level to common –regional as well as national–sectoral priorities and to make an active contribution to the generation of new knowledge.
