The importance of green, digital and entrepreneurial (GDE) skills is not only of particular relevance at EU level, but also in Germany there are many national, federal and local initiatives and projects to strengthen these so-called future skills. In today’s rapidly evolving economy, possessing a diverse set of skills is crucial for success in the labour market.
Developing green, digital, and entrepreneurial skills can greatly increase an individual’s value in the labour market. These skills are becoming increasingly important as the world becomes more sustainable and technology-driven, and individuals who can demonstrate proficiency in these areas will be well-positioned for success in the years to come.
For the same reason, also companies should invest in the training of green, digital, and entrepreneurial skills. Investing in these skills will help companies stay competitive in their respective industries, help them attract and retain top talent and, most importantly, investing in these skills will help companies to future-proof their workforce.
As technology continues to evolve and the world becomes more sustainable, companies that have a workforce with the necessary skills and knowledge will be better prepared to adapt to changing market conditions and stay ahead of the competition.
As a training provider at academic level, Knowledge Foundation @ Reutlingen University (KFRU) is helping both companies and individuals develop GDE skills with customized training and study programmes. One current example is an extensive reskilling program for the automotive industry which focuses on the transformation of job profiles from the area of combustion engines to alternative drive systems.
In this context, the ENCORE approach is an exciting possibility to improve the quality of our trainings and teach GDE skills in a more targeted way.
