New ContructSkills4LIFE project kicks off in Hungary

We are excited to announce that our new LIFE project has finally kicked off!

Co-funded by the European Union under the LIFE programme, the aim of the ConstructSkills4LIFE project is to support the Hungarian construction sector by paving the way to upgrade the skillset of blue and white collar workers needed to reach the targets set by EU and national policies until 2030 concerning the Hungarian building stock.

The project emphasizes a holistic approach focusing on a more intensified integration of digital technologies applicable in buildings, improved process management and qualitative renovation practices, subsequently fostering stakeholder cooperation and entrepreneurship that results in a more sustainable built environment.

Building on the results of the implemented national BUILD UP SKILLS projects (BUSH, TRAINBUD) the Consortium will revitalize the National Platform engaging relevant stakeholders from the construction industry (educational institutions, policy makers, professional associations, market actors) and conduct an up-to-date Status Quo Analysis (SQA) to have a clear picture of the current state of the Hungarian construction sector in relation to skill gaps of both blue- and white-collar workers, market demand and necessary measures to lead Hungary towards climate-neutrality. The Consortium and the Platform members will jointly co-develop through participatory workshops an upgraded Roadmap to provide an effective strategy and recommendations to tackle the challenges and foster development in the construction sector especially in clear energy transition, circular economy, digitalization, upskilling the sectors human capacity and health related to indoor air quality.
