REPowerEU 2030 targets
The growth of the hydrogen industry presents a significant economic and environmental opportunity for Europe, but it also creates considerable labour market challenges.
of renewable hydrogen
The EU is aiming for
1 million highly skilled
jobs by 2030 and
up to 5.4 million
Green Skills for Hydrogen will help meet EU targets by fast-tracking the upskilling and reskilling of students and members of the workforce all over Europe. Workers in declining sectors and transition regions will also benefit from upskilling and reskilling opportunities, through VET programmes that will enable them to access new employment opportunities within the Hydrogen sector.
Our project will:
- Design and implement a Hydrogen Skills Strategy
- Develop, test and rollout VET programmes across Europe
- Establish a partnership between Industry and Education
Green Skills for Hydrogen VET programmes and qualifications will anticipate the latest market needs and leverage EU instruments and tools, providing continuous green and digital skills, and ongoing career development to empower workers and technical professionals.
The Hydrogen Skills Strategy, VET and higher VET curricula, learning programmes and qualifications will be designed, tested, and made available to be adapted and scaled across the whole of Europe, meeting the current and future skills needs of the Hydrogen value chain and providing the backbone for the growth of the renewable energy sector in Europe.
The Hydrogen Skills Platform
The European Hydrogen Skills Platform will support an EU-wide online community of Hydrogen sector and VET stakeholders
and exchange of best practices
and community building
for the project
Join the European Hydrogen Skills Community to help ensure a greener, cleaner, more sustainable future!
The Green Skills Consortium
The Consortium managing this initiative is led by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and has a total of 34 partners from 15 Member States of the European Union. These partners comprise six Work Packages (WP) that will jointly coordinate the various activities and tasks to be carried out throughout the life of the project.
