  • Blue Energy Action needed to deliver on the potential of ocean energy in European seas and oceans by 2020 and beyond

    European Commission 2014
    Marine Energy | Off-shore renewable energies

    Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the regions. This Communication therefore sets out an action plan to guide further development of the ocean energy sector. Completion of this action plan in the period 2014-2017 should help the industrialisation of the sector, so that it can provide cost-effective, low-carbon electricity as well as new jobs and economic growth for the EU economy.

  • Future proofing the Scottish energy industry

    Skills Development Scotland 2016
    Marine Energy | Off-shore renewable energies

    One key area of this debate affecting all energy sub-sectors is skills. Our existing workforce is aging, with new entrants not joining the sector quickly enough. Some reports suggest that 72 per cent of energy employers are having difficulty finding quality candidates to fill their positions. This has implications not just for energy sector firms. It impacts on our whole economy, but it does present opportunities as well as risks. It’s essential that we encourage more young people - who are often more interested than they are credited for - to seek out careers in the energy sector with the objective of solving the on-going ‘trilemma’ of balancing carbon emissions, energy costs, and security of our energy supply. Skills Development Scotland (SDS) is committed to working with all sub-sectors of the industry to ensure it can access the skills it needs in order to capitalise on future opportunities.

    Marine Energy | Green technologies

    "Tapping the world’s huge offshore resources will be vital to meet future energy needs, but the dynamics of offshore energy are changing fast: • The shale revolution is asking new questions for investment in offshore oil and gas. • Policy support and technology development are promising major cost reductions for the next wave of offshore wind projects. This new report, in the flagship World Energy Outlook series, explores what these changing dynamics might mean for offshore energy activity in different scenarios to 2040. It also highlights the potential for greater integration and collaboration across different parts of the offshore energy sector."

    Marine Energy | Green technologies

    The Paris Agreement on Climate Change, adopted in 2015, is a global action plan to put the world on track to avoid dangerous climate change by limiting global warming to below 2oC. To achieve this goal, global emissions should peak as soon as possible and then must be significantly reduced compared to todays’ level. In line with this agreement, the IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee has recently agreed on a roadmap for developing a comprehensive strategy on the reduction of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from ships.

  • MOVING BETWEEN JOBS: AN ANALYSIS OF OCCUPATION DISTANCES AND SKILL NEEDS

    Nagui Bechichii, Robert Grundkei, Stéphanie Jameti and Mariagrazia Squicciarinii 2018
    Education and Training | Digitalisation

    This paper aims to inform policies facilitating job-to-job transitions triggered by changes in the task content of occupations and in job demand. It assesses the distances existing between occupations in terms of cognitive skills and of skills as they emerge from the tasks performed on the job, and the training needs that moving between occupations entails. Skill “shortages” and “excesses” calculated on data for 31 countries and aggregated over 127 occupations are used to estimate the training efforts required to meet the skills requirements of the destination job. Distances in cognitive skills are found to be higher among low-skilled or from mid- to high-skilled occupations than among higher-skilled occupations. Conversely, distances in task-related skills are higher within high-skilled than low-skilled occupations. These results call for policies aimed at developing general cognitive skills complemented by task-related skills for workers in low-skilled occupations, and on-the-job training options for workers in high-skilled occupations.

  • Towards a hybrid integration of women in the maritime sector: Gender and economy in the concept of maritime clusters

    Momoko Kitada, Meenaksi Birugnath-Bhookhun 2017
    Shipbuilding | GENDER

    This paper discusses how the concept of maritime clusters may bring an economic impact on the integration of women in the maritime sector. The concept of maritime clusters has gained a popularity from the viewpoint of a strategic economic development to increase an overall efficiency and to cultivate innovative ideas in the maritime industry. However, maritime clusters have hardly been discussed in the scope of empowering women in the maritime sector. Women’s participation in the maritime industry has been limited in many parts of the world and both horizontal and vertical segregations can be observed even today. This paper argues that the existing literature is lacking the acknowledgement of maritime women professionals to operationalise the concept of maritime clusters. The term, a “hybrid” integration of women in the maritime sector is employed in order to highlight multiple roles that women can play in advancing the concept of maritime clusters. The paper also refers to social costs faced by women managers in the maritime sector from our research and discusses the opportunities in maritime clusters to reduce such social costs.

  • Gender wage gap: evidence from the Hellenic maritime sector 1995-2002

    Stavros E. Arvanitis, Theodoros V. Stamatopoulos, Eleftherios J. Thalassinos 2011
    Shipbuilding | GENDER

    Problem Statement: Gender wage gap has already been researched in the Hellenic (Greek) economy or within its public and private aggregate sectors, but, this was the first study ever done, especially for the maritime sector. Traditionally in Hellas, maritime industry income is the biggest one after tourism, while both industries covered approximately 30% of GDP or financed more than 35% of the trade balance deficit, during the last decade. We also investigated the correlation and dependence of wages (total, males, females) on attributes of the human capital theory, such as age, educational level and work experience.

    Shipbuilding | GENDER

    This dissertation examines the background history of the employment of women in the maritime industry and reviews some of the difficulties, problems and hindrances encountered by women in the industry. It identifies international and national initiatives to encourage the participation of women in the industry with particular focus on MET. Selected areas and institutions of the industry are surveyed and the current and future roles of women are examined. A number of questionnaires and interviews were carried out with women role models and some general maritime workers and the results analyzed.

  • New skills Agenda for Europe. Working together to strengthen human capital, employability and competitiveness

    Europeran Commission 2016
    Education and Training | VET AND GOVERNANCE

    Making VET a first choice:Higher level VET provision is steadily expanding and is valued by both learners and employers for providing skills needed on the labour market. Such developments need to be further encouraged and be appropriately integrated into the qualification frameworks and systems. Business and social partners should be involved in designing and delivering VET at all levels, as demonstrated in the “dual system” of apprenticeships. VET should include a strong work-based dimension, whenever possible coupled with an international experience.
