Beskrivelse

Arrangør: ANE - Association of Nordic Engineers

This is due to a strong focus on innovation, technology and skills in private businesses and research institutions, as well as due to solid public/private financing models.
The transition to a greener economy will create jobs of the future. The conservative estimates from the scientific community tells that there is a need to be off carbon everywhere in the world in four decades, if the goals of the Paris Agreement are to be met. This massive shift in energy infrastructure is not going to be built by robots or by artificial intelligence – this shift in infrastructure needs human hands. This means mass employment for two generations across all sectors involving low-skilled, semi-skilled and professional labour.

According to the International Labour Organisation, at least half of the global workforce - the equivalent of 1.5 billion people - is affected by the transition to a greener economy.The role of engineers in this green transition is paramount. By fostering innovation engineers create the technological environment necessary for the transition to a low-carbon economy.
