The rapid growth of Europe's hydrogen value chain in the coming years is expected to bring about 1 million high-skilled jobs by 2030 and 5.4 million by 2050. This growth represents significant economic and environmental opportunities for Europe, but also poses significant labor market challenges.


The main objective of the Greenskills4H2 project is to develop and implement a highly innovative, effective and sustainable hydrogen skills strategy for Europe that will ensure that the skills needs of the rapidly growing hydrogen value chain are met in the short, medium and long term. The plan aims to address the skills needs of workers in declining sectors and regions in transition to provide them with upskilling and re-skilling opportunities that will enable them to access new employment opportunities in the hydrogen sector.


GreenSkills4H2 is an alliance of partners in the hydrogen sector, led by Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT), Hydrogen Europe and Hydrogen Europe Research, bringing together key players from industry and education. Project activities include:

  • establishing a long-term partnership between industry and education;
  • developing an innovative and sustainable strategy for hydrogen skills;
  • developing, testing and implementing VET curricula and training in line with the latest market needs and consistent with EU instruments and tools;
  • continuous skills and career development that enhances technical professionalism in both green and digital competencies;
  • and widespread dissemination and implementation of VET training to maximize European impact.

The Pomerania Regional Chamber of Commerce has been selected as part of the hydrogen-focused alliance and has joined a consortium of 40 partners from higher education and research, vocational training, companies, clusters, national or European hydrogen associations and local authorities.


The duration of the project is 4 years, and in the meantime activities are planned such as analyzing hydrogen skills needs, developing vocational training and qualification/certification to meet urgent and emerging needs, not forgetting promotion, communication and work on project sustainability. After analyzing skills needs and developing a skills strategy (Year 1), a basic curriculum will be developed and training materials will be developed (Year 2 - 3). Training will then be implemented to test the materials developed by different audiences (Year 3 - Year 4).


The official launch of the project was held on July 6 and 7 in Brussels with the participation of representatives of the Pomeranian Regional Chamber of Commerce. Participation in this European project will allow the Chamber to continue and intensify its work - successively addressing the challenges of skills, jobs and training.
