Interreg Europe Webinar: Jobs and skills for the energy transition

On Thursday 29 April (14:00-15:30 CET), the Interreg Europe Policy Learning Platform will hold a webinar on jobs and skills for the energy transition.

Renewable energy and energy efficiency in sectors such as building renovations and electricity production have been identified by the EU as flagship areas where the most jobs can be created for the recovery of the European economy.

Directing investments and reforms toward these flagship areas will be crucial for meeting the enhanced EU climate targets while improving the employment performance of regions thanks to the provision of reskilling schemes and the emergence of new sustainable professions. Regional policymakers have a clear role to play on this by supporting training programmes teaching skills for the energy transition at all levels, setting-up dedicated structures for skill development and designing measures to stimulate demand for the newly acquired skills.

This webinar will present the Interreg Europe policy recommendations on jobs and skills for the energy transition and will focus on particularly successful good practices to strengthen energy efficiency and renewable energy competences among different categories of workers.
