The EU has a vision to become carbon neutral by 2050. To achieve this, energies like offshore renewables (ORE) play a key role. A long-term plan for maritime spatial planning needs to be put in place, together with the scaling-up of the whole value chain. The challenge: to deliver a six-fold increase in the installation rate and to cover up to 54,000 new jobs in the next five years. The aging of the current workforce in shipbuilding, which contributes to the manufacture of ORE devices, increases the pressure to ensure replacement and avoid a loss of skills. Growing a well-qualified labour force has now become an emergency,in order to underpin the industrial growth through the uptake of new technologies and innovations.

In the Marine Training online catalogue, you can find a repository of all the training courses, resources and skills related events in the marine sector across Europe. In the FLORES project we have also developed an specific section on courses and resources related specifically with Offshore Renewable Energies (ORE). You can check this live database and also input your own trainings and courses if you want to get extra visibility.
