The Green Skills for Hydrogen Project (GreenSkillsforH2) is contributing to the development of a skilled workforce in Europe for the emerging hydrogen economy by addressing the skills gap and providing training to boost the industry.
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. GreenSkillsforH2 will help meet the challenging REPowerEU 2030 targets for the Green Transition.
GreenSkillsforH2 will help meet REPowerEU2030 targets by accelerating the upskilling and reskilling of students and members of the workforce across Europe.
Green Skills for Hydrogen will:
Design and implement a Hydrogen Skills Strategy to meet 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.
Develop, test and rollout Vocational and Educational Training (VET) programmes across Europe according to the latest market needs to empower workers and technical professionals.
Create the European Hydrogen Skills Community.
Establish a European Hydrogen Skills Alliance, a lasting partnership between Industry and Education.
The Green Skills for Hydrogen project has collaborated closely with hydrogen stakeholders across the European Union to identify the occupational profiles in high demand in the sector and analyse the required level of “hydrogen knowledge” of these profiles. This study has enabled us to outline what we call the European Hydrogen Skills Strategy.
This Strategy aims to provides insights into the current landscape of educational and training programmes available for hydrogen skill development in Europe.
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.
