6 June 2019 ‘Skills needs, training and education in the paper and printing industries’


Join us in Graz, Austria, on 6 June 2019 for a unique opportunity to actively participate in the Skills for Paper and Print Next Generations (SPPRING) project. SPPRING will identify skills and educational needs in the pulp and paper manufacturing and paper-based printing industries. This will inform an EU skills and recruitment strategy to upskill and enhance the availability of the future workforce. Experts from companies, VET, schools and universities, ministries, and recruitment agencies will have the opportunity to discuss and analyse the results of an EU-wide survey taken by industry stakeholders.

The workshop runs parallel to the Paper & Biorefinery Conference, 5-6 June 2019. This event is free to attend. On 7 June 2019, 09:00-12:30, attendees are invited to join a trip to the Sappi paper mill in Gratkorn, close to Graz.

Please let me know if you have any questions. And don’t forget to sign up to be a key project stakeholder (here) to be kept up to date of the survey which will inform this workshop as well as future opportunities to help define the EU skills and recruitment strategy!
