The kick-off conference of the Energy(k) Education project will take place on Wednesday, November 29, in the Provincial House of Antwerp. We start from the current situation of competence and training needs in the light of the energy transition. We look for maximum opportunities for cross-border and regional cooperation between secondary and higher education. To this end, the partnership presents a roadmap to experts and stakeholders in one of the relevant sectors in the built environment (construction and installation), industry and energy. Together we look at how we can better tailor secondary and higher education to the needs of the energy transition.
The kick-off conference is the place to be if you want to gain more and new insights, knowledge and contacts around training skilled personnel for the energy transition.
Energy(k) Education is a border region project that will recruit, train, retrain and upskill young people and adults for professions to enable the energy transition. 18 educational institutions, government agencies, sectoral and other intermediary organizations from Flanders and the southern Netherlands are working together across borders in this project. The common goal is to eliminate personnel and competence shortages in relevant sectors for the energy transition.
