Results

The challenges faced by European steel sector, as detailed in the sections above, make the identification and anticipation of skill needs necessary for the continued competitiveness of the European Steel Industry. The Blueprint for the industry driven long-term skills strategy, as the principal outcome, is expected to facilitate steel companies and VET institutions efforts to transition the workforce and meet future needs for, for example, the deployment and implementation of new technologies, the material and environmental optimisation of the production process, energy efficiency improvements, high-performance materials development, and so on. In meeting the emerging demands of the industry the basis for highly skilled employment is established and the foundations for attracting and retaining talented people to the steel sector laid down, thus keeping jobs in Europe and fostering smart, inclusive and sustainable growth.
