Join the roundtable panel discussion on Skills and Youth: What are the Challenges for the European Rail Sector? (in French) at SIFER 2023 in Lille!
28 March | 15:20 - 16:20 | Forum 2 - Skills and Youth: What are the Challenges for the European Rail Sector? (French)
Moderator: Ana Manuelito, UNIFE, Public Affairs Manager
During this roundtable, we will discuss the skills needed for the development of the European rail sector, its attractiveness to young people (both as passengers and employees) and the need to attract new talent.
How does STAFFER (European Rail Skills Alliance) address these challenges? What is the role of Member States in defining national education policies and the relationship with the needs of businesses? What are the skills challenges facing the rail sector and how are industry and operators preparing to address them? What role can institutions, in particular the European Commission, play within the framework of their competencies and the European Skills 2023 initiative?
Also, stop by UNIFE's stand 2-154 to learn about STAFFER.
Staged every two years since 1999, SIFER, France's only B2B international railway exhibition, brings together suppliers and manufacturers of the very latest in railway technology, products and services aimed at meeting the complex needs of main line and urban networks.
As well as providing a gateway to one of Europe's major markets, SIFER helps participating companies pursue export opportunities thanks to its track record in attracting international visitors. As the showcase event for France's dynamic railway supply industry, it sets the scene for wide-ranging and productive exchanges on the future of the industry, and for the establishment of strategic contacts and relationships.
