ChemSkills: enabling the green and digital skills transformation of the chemical industry
The chemical industry is currently undergoing a quadruple or double twin transition. It encompasses green and digital transformation
alongside circularity and the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability (CSS). The initiative “ChemSkills: enabling the green and digital skills
transformation of the chemical industry” is to respond to these challenges and to identify and develop green and digital skills, in addition to
skills to produce “safe and sustainable chemicals by design” within the low-carbon energy intensive ecosystem.
The project will cover several sub-sectors of the chemical industry:
- consumer chemicals
It will map the already existing skills and develop emerging occupational profiles and related qualifications covering upper and postsecondary
VET levels (EQF levels 3 to 5) and tertiary levels (EQF levels 6 to 8).
The project will bring together stakeholders to jointly implement strategies to address skills gaps in the above-mentioned sub-sectors. The
key stakeholders include social partners, business representations, research institutes, education and training providers, universities and
public authorities, amongst others.
