New mobility services: Anticipating Skills and Job Roles
11 December 2020 11:15 - 12:15
We are pleased to invite you to the webinar “New mobility services: Anticipating skills and job roles” that aims to bridge the gap between the skills and job roles needed for the new mobility services sector and the workforce.
New mobility services are offering solutions to today’s growing challenges in terms of congestion, lack of space, growing population, air quality, noise, social inclusion, health, economic development, and the creation of jobs. These solutions require skilled and adaptable individuals who are able to drive and support change. However, there is a growing skills shortage in the mobility services sector which could seriously delay the development of the services and hurt customers’ expectations. Thus it is required to look into new skills for the future workforce but also opportunities realized through reskilling the workforce.
About the webinar
The event will be held within the sixth edition of the Skillman International Forum focused on ‘Redefining the Future of Learning in the Advanced Manufacturing Sector’. Additionally, it is part of the Skillnet series of 18 webinars designed to bring together experts in different fields linked to vocational education and training (VET) with the purpose of establishing relevant groups of collaboration and partnerships for future EU project proposals.
The webinar will highlight regional examples on the integration of new mobility services and the development of skills and job roles needed in the sector. In this context, it aims to:
- Highlight the relevance of EU funding opportunities and European cooperation in bridging the skills’ gap in the new mobility services sector
- Share good practices about how regions and local companies can foster the relevant skills in the population
- Boost a network of cross-sectoral experts interested in the new mobility services that can be applied for future EU funding opportunities.
