2. Observatory skills needs & offer

The main objective of this WP is to feed a Skills Observatory in the ORE by completing the following specific objectives:

  • Establish a detailed baseline about the actual situation of occupational profiles and skills needed in the Offshore Renewable Energies sector
  • Map the trainings offers addressed to the ORE in the EU
  • Forecast future trends in the sector and how they are expected to impact in the capacity demand

Lead partner: CERTH-HIT

WP Coordinator: Maria Boile

Contact Person & email: Lefteris Sdoukopoulos,

A desk analysis on the current occupations in the ORE, and their skills needs will be conducted, taking into consideration the findings of the MATES Blueprint project and updating them. The training offers identified will form the basis to assess the qualifications currently on offer. This approach will be completed with a qualitative research based on a focus group with experts from the industry, to identify current shortages and gaps, in terms of skills. The result of this work will be a report identifying the ORE occupations, training offer and identifying existing gaps.

The project will develop a map of EU training offers in the ORE, based on mining information activities. This will be hosted in the catalogue, linked from the FLORES project website, in order to retrofeed both pages when retrieving information in ORE training offers. This will help to ease future updates of the P4S-ORE partnership.

Taking into consideration the information gathered in the project,emerging trends will be identified with respect to new technologies, new skills, training programs and other associated parameters such as emerging jobs, affected ages and genders. A Delphi exercise will be conducted to propose future scenarios on skills and competences, as well as skill gaps in the current and foreseen occupations at the short, mid and long-term. The result will be a report identifying the expected future trends in the ORE, their impact on the skills demand and preferred training materials to address them.

3. Promoting Life-Long Learning in ORE

To stimulate a dedicated training offer for the ORE, by achieving the following specific objectives:

  • Underpin the skilling process for the new jobs expected in the sector
  • Improve up-skilling opportunities in the field of ORE the actual workforce
  • Promote innovative approaches in LLL

Lead partner: Asime

WP Coordinator: Enrique Mallón

Contact Person & email: Vanessa Huertas

A set of guidelines was collected, revised and adapted to promote innovative approaches and good practices for syllabus design and teaching activities in the ORE. They take into consideration the  EQAVET approach and address at least the collaboration of different groups of stakeholders in both processes – namely industry and training providers- provision of short trainings and modularity, establishment of procedures to guarantee equality in the access to training and the allocation of the time for the employees to be trained.

A catalogue of best practices, training materials and supporting materials will be developed and inserted in the catalogue, to facilitate its access to the educator and trainer communities addressing the ORE.

A helpdesk will be established to promote investment in ORE capacity-building processes: it will support the creation of alliances among stakeholders, provide information on funding opportunities and updates on the use of current VET standards. The helpdesk will transmit information received from the support from the P4S knowledge hub. A set of FAQs will be developed, and a newsletter will disseminate news concerning the new opportunities and updates on VET standards.

4. Promoting Careers in the ORE

To contribute to the promotion of careers in the ORE, by achieving the following specific objectives:

  • Raise awareness on ORE job opportunities, making those more appealing, especially for young people and  women
  • Promote ocean literacy and a better understanding of offshore energies
  • Update the occupational profiles descriptions in the ESCO database

Lead partner: University of Coruña (UdC)

WP Coordinator: Vicente Díaz Casás

Contact Person & email:  Lucía Santiago Caamaño,

A set of materials describing ORE careers will be developed addressing scholars and their families. A special attention will be paid to include women involved in maritime technologies.

A section in the web with descriptions about ORE careers, and 16 short videos (1 min) with interviews to ORE careers “ambassadors” covering a wide range of profiles. Developed in ENGLISH, and subtitled in SPANISH, ITALIAN, FRENCH,

A card game presenting career opportunities in the ORE, available either online as printed. (EN,ES, FR, IT)

Educational materials promoting ocean literacy and the understanding of the ORE will be prepared. Efforts will be addressed to design guidelines for teachers and educators, to get a multiplier effect by their inclusion in their teaching curricula.Guidelines and supporting materials aimed at developing practical STEAM experiences with students (inspired in Offhsorewind 4 Kids).

Developed in ENGLISH, and translated to SPANISH, FRENCH, ITALIAN.

The ESCO occupational profiles involved in the ORE value chain will be reviewed, considering the skills intelligence results from the FLOERS project. These  results will be transferred to the ESCO secretariat, to be considered in the revision for the ESCO v1.2.

5. Building durable partnerships

To contribute to the building of durable partnerships in the ORE, by achieving the following specific objectives:

  • Build a community of users for the materials developed by the project in the regions with most interest in the ORE
  • Adapt the existing training materials and approaches to the different needs of Europe’s sea basins
  • Promote the creation of future mirror working groups in the large scale partnership launching the Pact for Skills in the ORE
  • Identify barriers to the creation of durable partnerships and good practices to overcome them

Lead partner: Cetmar

WP Coordinator: Lucía Fraga

Contact Person & email:

Identify and mobilise participants from the industry and the education and training communities involved in the ORE value chain. Set the basis to launch pilot actions in four areas of the Atlantic, the Baltic and the Mediterranean.

A selection of training materials identified in the project will be reviewed and adapted for their use in the areas selected to launch the pilot actions.

Three different courses will be adapted to create a training itinerary addressing the specific training needs in each of the pilot areas. Several themes have been preselected (and may vary depending on the results of previous tasks):

  • Re-skilling processes to promote the workers mobility from other energy sectors (as coal or shipbuilding engineering)
  • Multi-use of the maritime space and Marine Spatial Planning.

Adaptations will include syllabus revisions, translations, and also the type of training delivery taking into consideration the target groups.

This task will explore the barriers to the creation of partnerships related to the recognition of the efforts dedicated to establish collaborations among different stakeholders (namely academia and industry).

A set of recommendations will be issued to overcome these barriers, identifying the main stakeholders addressed.

6. Communication: dissemination, exploitation of results
