EDDIE Tools towards Blueprint Strategy for the Digitalisation of the Energy value chain (BSDE)
Map the stakeholders
The activity will be developed to identify, describe and indicate priorities for the improvement or the establishment of new qualifications (job profiles and skills needed) and strategic network building with a strong industry-driven approach
Underpin and illustrate the Blueprint Strategy
Blueprint Strategy for the Digitalisation of the Energy value chain (BSDE) to tackle the skills shortages and mismatches identified, fostering multi-stakeholder partnerships (e.g. between industry, social partners, education and training, public authorities, smart cities and global communities)
Perform a pilot for demonstration
Perform a pilot to demonstrate the scalability, replicability and sustainability of the action plan for the progressive roll-out of the BSDE after the project has finished, based on sustained partnerships and continuous updating of the strategy to foster the long-term and large-scale replication and continuous updating of the training programs.
Develop a communication and dissemination strategy
All the actions perform among the identified target groups at regional, national and EU level and include details on how the roll-out will be implemented at national and/or regional levels with relevant governmental and sectorial authorities
