Background Information:

The European Commission has declared 2023 as the European Year of Skills, aiming to promote lifelong learning, empower individuals and companies to contribute to green and digital transitions, and support innovation and competitiveness. Within this context, we acknowledge the transformative potential of enhancing skills development in the transport sector.

The transport sector, a key driver of economic growth, connectivity, and the green and digital transition, holds paramount importance. It aligns with global efforts to combat climate change, ensures competitiveness, and promotes sustainability. Embracing green technologies and digitalization enhances efficiency, reduces environmental impacts, and fosters economic growth. However, it also presents challenges that require upskilling and reskilling.
