22. November 2012 - Workshop on Education, Competences, and the Workforce in The Blue Denmark

Back-to-back Workshops on the topics of Education, Competences, and the Workforce in The Blue Denmark.

The Blue Denmark is facing large challenges in the future, as continuing globalization puts pressure on the competetiveness of the Danish maritime sector. The goal of the workshop was to produce recommendations for both vocational and higher educational programs, to ensure the continued development of comptences in the Danish maritime cluster.

The workshop was split into two parts:

9.00 - 13.00 Vocational education

The purpose was to discuss which competences that will be demanded in the future from from graduates of vocational programs. Additionally, the groups discussed the needs for innovation, as well as environmental and technological developments which will influence these needs.  

The goal was to provide recommendations on which adjustments the maritime vocational programs should make, so the competences they provide continue to match the needs of the sector.
