Registrations open for 6 June Workshop in Graz


Registrations are now open for the 6 June 2019 workshop on ‘Skills needs, training and education in the paper and printing industries’, part of the Skills for Paper and Print Next Generations (SPPRING) project.

Please complete the attached registration form and return it to Theresa Bernhart (

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.

Looking forward to seeing you in Graz!
