Final Conference of the EU-funded project “Upskilling Shipbuilding Workforce in Europe” - 26 November


Upskilling Shipbuilding Workforce in Europe (USWE) is an EU-funded project that was born in the frame of the European Sectoral Social Dialogue for Shipbuilding with the aim of supporting industry and workers in the adaptation to the industry 4.0 technologies affecting the sector. Through this project the sectoral social partners, SEA Europe and IndustriAll Europe, set up the basis for long term cooperation between industry, workers, education provider and other stakeholders across Europe, providing market intelligence on sectoral, green, digital and soft skills needed in the sector and updating professional profiles for the development of new curricula. The project also tackled the scarcity of sectoral skills and workers in the sector and the need of attracting talent to a strategic manufacturing industry that is key for Europe’s sustainable mobility and to meet the ambitions of the green and digital transition and the decarbonisation of waterborne transport. 

The Final Conference of the joint EU-funded project “Upskilling Shipbuilding Workforce in Europe” organized by SEA Europe and IndustriAll Europe will take place on 26 November, from 10h30 to 12h30. The event aims to bring together industry, workers representatives, education providers and policy makers to present the outcomes of the project and discuss future steps.

In order to participate in the event, please register yourself via email to by 23rd November.

What is an Intergroup?

The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup is one of the 27 Intergroups that were approved on 11 December 2019 by the Conference of Presidents for the 9th legislature of the European Parliament. Intergroups can be formed by MEPs from any political group and any parliamentary committee with a view to holding informal exchanges of views on particular issues and promoting contact between MEPs and civil society.

The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup brings together more than 100 MEPs from 7 different political groups and 23 Member States.

Intergroups are not Parliament bodies and therefore may not express Parliament's opinion.

Intergroups are subject to internal rules adopted by the Conference of Presidents on 16 December 1999 (last updated on 11 September 2014), which set out the conditions under which intergroups may be established at the beginning of each parliamentary term and their operating rules.
