The green transition
RES4CITY is a new innovative educational project, with a budget of 2.5 million euros, fully funded by the European Commission through the Horizon Europe Program. Juan Viesca, Director of European Funds at Finnova, explained at the launch meeting that this initiative “aims to address the skills shortage in the EU in the renewable energy sector” through a set of educational programs and tools that enable students to develop skills in renewable energy systems, fuel technologies and sustainability.
RES4CITY is an innovative European educational project 100% funded by the European Commission through the Horizon Europe Program. Its main objective is to bridge the skills gap that is slowing down our transition to sustainable energy. It will be designed by a multidisciplinary group of partners from academia, industry and European NGOs with expertise in energy management, renewable energy systems, renewable fuel technologies and the development and implementation of sustainability strategy design. RES4CITY aims to ensure that education systems are at the heart of the ecological transition. The team will co-design a set of micro-master programs aimed at Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) graduates and non-STEM graduates, as well as professionals seeking retraining in a wide variety of sectors and career paths. These micro-masters will respond to the needs and priorities of companies, public institutions and citizens.
