Project title: SKILLs and competences development of FUture transportation profes­sionals at all Levels

Duration: 36 months (1/10/2016 – 30/09/2019)


SKILLFUL vision is to identify the skills and competences needed by the Trans­port workforce of the future (2020, 2030 and 2050 respectively) and define the training methods and tools to meet them.


SKILLFUL aims are threefold:

  1. to critically review the existing, emerging and future knowledge and skills requirements of workers at all levels in the transportation sector, with emphasis on competences re­quired by important game changers and paradigm shifters (such as elec­trification and greening of transport, automation, MaaS, etc.;
  2. to structure the key specifications and components of the curricula and training courses that will be needed to meet these competence requirements optimally, with emphasis on multidis­ciplinary education and training pro­grammes;
  3. to identify and propose new business roles in the education and training chain, in particular those of “knowl­edge aggregator”, “training certifier” and “training promoter”, in order to achieve European wide competence development and take-up in a sus­tainable way.
