The aim of the EUKI project ‘GreenVOCnet – Vocational Empowerment for a Green and Socially Just Transition’ is to develop vocational skills in two exemplary climate-relevant technologies, heat pumps combined with renewable energies and green hydrogen. GreenVOCnet addresses the shortage of skilled workers, the lack of expertise and also the lack of acceptance that inhibit the green and social transition in the partner countries.

In order to identify the current needs for the design of new vocational training programmes for the two selected technologies, an online survey was conducted in the participating countries – Greece, Slovakia and Spain – from 1 February to 14 March 2024 .A total of 173 experts in the field of green technologies from vocational training centres, enterprises and other stakeholders participated.

The survey revealed some very interesting results. In all three countries there are often identical challenges in the labour market and in vocational training. Common solutions are essential to enable and realise the social and economic transformation in Europe.

The results of the survey once again show the importance of cooperation between European countries and the high relevance of joint EUKI projects for the success of the necessary transformation process with the aim of reducing CO2 emissions and becoming climate neutral.
