The EUKI project GTL project has shown the need for inter- and transdisciplinary ideas fed by an active international exchange of knowledge in terms of technology but also regarding social innovation, to prepare local economies for a successful green transition. There is a significant lack of professionally qualified specialists in European societies who can bring these technologies to the market. Therefore, this web seminar will discuss how vocational educational training (VET) expertise represents the base to empower local economies to exploit the potential of new green technologies and contribute to achieving climate goals.
