Paving the way for a clean Hydrogen economy in Europe
The European Hydrogen Skills Alliance is providing workers and industry with the new skills that are required to meet the challenging targets of the Green Transition.

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.

1 millon tonnes

of renewable hydrogen
per year

Our ambition

The EU is aiming for
1 million highly skilled
by 2030 and
up to 5.4 million
by 2050

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 European Hydrogen Skills Platform will support an EU-wide online community of Hydrogen sector and VET stakeholders
