Rebooting the National Platforms for the development of construction skills for all life cycle phases of buildings in Hungary

ConstructSkills4LIFE project’s aim is to support the Hungarian construction industry in reaching the targets set until 2030 by emphasizing a holistic approach focusing on the integration of digital technologies, improved process management and qualitative renovation practices, fostering stakeholder cooperation and entrepreneurship. 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 will 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. Based on the results of the SQA the Consortium and the Platform members will jointly co-develop in form of 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. The quality expert work is supported by key national stakeholders and an External Advisory Board.
