H2Skills - Further training needs in the hydrogen economy

The qualification of skilled workers plays an important role in the successful ramp-up of the hydrogen economy. In order to focus more strongly on this topic, the joint project "H2Skills" of the Lüneburg-Wolfsburg Chamber of Industry and Commerce and the Braunschweig-Lüneburg-Stade Chamber of Skilled Crafts was launched in 2021. The first step is to analyse the further training needs in companies. 

Current: Results from the needs analysis for qualification offers in the hydrogen context presented

On 06.09.22, the H2Skills project of the Lüneburg-Wolfsburg Chamber of Industry and Commerce and the Braunschweig-Lüneburg-Stade Chamber of Skilled Crafts presented the results of the needs analysis for qualification offers in the hydrogen context in northeastern Lower Saxony. Following the keynote speech by hydrogen ambassador Paul Schneider from EWE and the project presentation, there was a lively exchange among the participants in the Kunstsaal Lüneburg. The project results and the courses developed in the project can be found on the website of the Chamber of Crafts Braunschweig-Lüneburg-Stade.

In order to ensure the successful qualification of skilled workers in the hydrogen sector, the "H2Skills" project will first conduct expert interviews and an online survey - in order to determine the further training needs in the hydrogen economy. To ensure that the results are as meaningful as possible, all companies in north-east Lower Saxony are asked to take part in the survey.

The project area includes the districts of Celle, Cuxhaven, Harburg, Heidekreis, Lüchow-Dannenberg, Lüneburg, Osterholz, Rotenburg (Wümme), Stade, Uelzen and Verden. There is no restriction to specific sectors.

If your company is located in the project area, you are welcome to participate in the survey at: https://www.ihk-lueneburg.de/wasserstoff

Based on the results of the needs analysis, initial approaches for certificate courses, additional examinations, further training and supplementary modules of existing qualification offers are to be developed.

The project was launched in November 2021 and will run until 31 March 2023, funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) as part of the EU's response to the Covid 19 pandemic.
