The SPIRE-SAIS project aims to develop an industry-driven and proactive skills strategy that will assist the wider implementation and exploitation of industrial symbiosis and energy efficiency across the energy intensive industrial sectors represented in SPIRE: chemicals, steel, engineering, non-ferrous metals, minerals, water, cement, and ceramics. The new skills developed will help unfold the potential of digital transformation within SPIRE companies and beyond. The project will build on the existing coordination, projects and activities of SPIRE in a truly cross-sectoral approach.
Educational modules and tools for greater awareness of the needs and opportunities provided by improved industrial symbiosis and energy efficiency will be developed. New skills, including digital skills, for the practical implementation of industrial symbiosis in globally competitive industries will be identified that anticipate the skills requirements of industry and allow proactive practical activities to meet the future skills needs of the Energy Intensive Industries in Europe and beyond.
H2O People and EJWP will be represented as partner in the General Assembly.
