INSTRUCT project first outcomes delivered!
The INSTRUCT project intends to create a complete operational framework to increase the number of skilled building professionals and blue collar workers over the whole value chain (both for renovations and new constructions), and offer a set of service to support raising awareness of home and building owners and tenants about the benefits of sustainable energy skills, and the public authorities for the development of new legislative frameworks, e.g. requirements for skilled workers in public procurement.
INSTRUCT will raise awareness of stakeholders in the construction value chain about environmental challenges, current and future sustainability scenarios, and energy efficiency targets, and EC and governments agendas, with a view of delivering energy efficient built environment interventions across lifecycle and supply chain.
The project just published its first results about evidencing the correlation between training and energy efficiency. It appeared that several context-specific (in terms of application, workforce segment, and country) studies have highlighted a number of barriers, challenges, and gaps in the training landscape in the European construction industry.
