This document contains the collection of Assessment Reports developed in 2012/2013 by the Expert Working Groups of the Strategic Energy Technology Plan European Energy Education and Training Task Force. It provides background information supporting the findings and recommendations put forward in the Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan Roadmap on Education and Training.

In moving forward energy technology innovation, the SET Plan has recognised that one of the key elements for successful implementation at EU level is the availability and mobilisation of appropriately skilled human resources. The energy sector is an evolving field which creates new job opportunities but at the same time requires the development of new skills and competences. The challenges for the education and training institutions and their legal frameworks will be to ensure a workforce flow of researchers, engineers and technicians who are able to generate new knowledge and to meet the... more

The EHRO-N team provides the EC with essential data related to supply and demand for nuclear experts based on bottom-up information from the nuclear industry. The current report deals with an alternative approach to derive figures for the demand side information of the nuclear workforce. Complementary to the bottom-up approach taken by the EHRO-N team at JRC-IET, a top-down modeling approach extrapolation of nuclear energy demand scenario’s is followed here in addition to the survey information.

On 30 May 2012 EHRO-N, the European Human Resource Observatory in the Nuclear Sector, released its first report analyzing how the supply of experts for the nuclear industry in the EU-27 responds to the demand for the same experts in the region by 2020.
