The main focus of this webinar, which will be held in English, will be the crucial question on the need for skills in the green transition from a Nordic perspective. We gather representatives from Nordic enterprise organisations, researchers and policy makers to discuss the following topics:

  • Are there critical skills missing?
  • On a policy level, what is being done in the respective Nordic country to recruit and attract?
  • What are the emerging policy instruments?
