EMF is a partner in a new project (Grenn IT node ) that investigates the needed skills and competences for green ICT jobs.
The project started in November 2011 and address the shortage of skilled professionals in the Green IT field. During the 24 months of the project, Green IT node will analyse the market needs, the existing trainings available for the different components and competences, and define a professional standard in the participating European countries.
GreenIT node will develop European specialist profiles that are in compliance with the principles of the European metaframeworks EQF/e-CF and ECVET as well as guidelines for developing/setting-up further vocational training measures for Green ICT jobs. The expected impact will allow for comparable skills sets for these professions of the future which supports the European labour market and tus, the employability of professionals while at the same time contributing to one of the major challenges of Europe 2020.
