RELATED INITIATIVES

The BIMEET project aimed to leverage the take-up of ICT and BIM through a significant upgrade of the skills and capacities of the EU construction workforce. This Coordination and Support Action project was built around a strong consortium relying on educational and research expertise, the robust experience of accrediting and labeling bodies, the training supply chain, and a wide engagement of industry-led best practices (already committed in an EU-wide expert panel).

BUSLeague is dedicated to stimulate demand for sustainable energy skills in the construction sector. BUSLeague focusses on a blend of four elements: mutual recognition of energy skills, awareness raising, capacity building and legislative changes.

 

INSTRUCT aims to act at a market level by providing an operational framework and set of services serving to increase the number of skilled building professionals and construction workers along the value chain, raising awareness of stakeholders in the construction value chain— including producers and retailers, home and building owners, and tenants about environmental challenges and the benefits of sustainable energy skills—and paving the way for legislative changes that overall will stimulate the demand for energy skills.

The PRO-Heritage project aims to offer continuous education for professionals and craftsmen working in cultural heritage. It provides traditional competencies and skills for built heritage, based on best practice examples gathered by partner organisations. Additionally, PRO-Heritage will support the exchange of competencies and expertise across Europe by establishing a structure for the mobility of these professionals in Europe.

TRAIN4SUSTAIN aims to stimulate the demand for skilled construction sector professionals (architects, contractors-SMEs and workers) through raising acceptance of regional and national qualifications and skills on the EU construction market.

The nZEB Roadshow is Horizon 2020 project stimulating the demand for skilled workers by promoting market demand for quality nearly zero-energy buildings. In support of this goal, it will organize no less than 25 events in Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Italy and Romania, featuring product exhibitions, job fairs, training courses, live demonstrations, games for children - and lots of fun!
