Project: SkillSea

Radical changes required to future-proof training and education of maritime professionals

As part of the SkillSea project, a new report was released – Current Skills Needs: Reality and Mapping.

In addition to an event on seafarers’ employment organised by ETF affiliates, we will be involved in a number of other events together with the European Community Shipowners’ Associations (ECSA).
