European project to recruit more maritime professionals

23 November 2018

A new four-year project launched by the European Transport Workers’ Federation (ETF) and the European Community Shipowners’ Associations (ECSA), backed by the STC Group and co-financed by the European Commission, aims to attract and train more Europeans to work in maritime industries. 

“Futureproof skills for the maritime transport sector (SkillSea)” will begin in January 2019. It aims to: increase the number of European maritime professionals; look at the effects of technological developments on the industry’s skills requirements; overcome barriers to the mobility of seafaring labour; and improve cooperation between education providers, the relevant authorities and industry.
