RES4CITY will create a suite of education programmes and tools providing inclusive opportunities for all learners to develop skills in renewable energy systems, fuel technologies, and sustainability. RES4CITY aims to ensure that education systems are at the core of the green transition. The project will co-design a suite of micro-credential programmes targeting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and non-STEM graduates, as well as professionals wishing to re-skill from a wide variety of industries and diverse career paths. These micro- credentials will meet needs and priorities of businesses, public institutions and citizens.
The project aims to address a projected EU skills shortage in the renewable energy sector, which has the potential to create 38 million jobs by 2030, and 43 million jobs by 2050. RES4CITY’s education programme will be designed by a multi-disciplinary group of partners across European academia, industry, and NGOs with expertise in energy management, renewable energy systems, renewable fuel technologies and the development and implementation of sustainability strategy design.
Funding is provided by the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme.
