THE EO4GEO PROJECT

Technological progress and globalisation offer tremendous opportunities for innovation, job creation and growth. This also requires people to acquire new skills in order to drive and support change. But which skills are they, and how can we build and shape the workforce of the future? This is where EO4GEO steps in.

The project works in multi and interdisciplinary way and apply innovative solutions for its education and training actions: case-based and collaborative scenarios; learning-while-doing in al living lab environment; on-the-job training and co-creation of knowledge, skills and competences.
The project started on January 2st, 2018; it will run for 4 years, closely collaborating with DG GROW and DG EMPLOYMENT to reach its strategic objective.
