On March 6th, RES4CITY’s network of European hubs has officially launched in Valencia, Spain.

To promote the work of the RES4CITY project, a network of European hubs has been created in 7 urban areas across Europe. These hubs are based in the following locations:

*Maynooth, Ireland
*Coimbra, Portugal
*Genoa and Sassari, Italy
*Grenoble, France
*Halmsted, Sweden
*Kongens Lyngby, Denmark
*Valencia, Spain

 The hubs are designed to drive strategic partnerships between academia, industry, local authorities, and other types of organisations operating in education – in support of RES4CITY. Each of the seven hubs is engaging with local, national and international stakeholders collecting feedback and input for RES4CITY’s micro-programmes.

Our European hubs launch event is open to everyone from students and professors to professionals and companies. Join us on March 6th where you will;

*be introduced to the RES4CITY project, its aims, and objectives
*find out more about the network hubs
*hear from experts during the Green Talks
*participate in the Climate Fresk workshop
*join other attendees for a networking lunch

What are the Green Talks and the Climate Fresk workshop?
Green Talks are quick fire presentations with the opportunity for the audience to ask questions. At the RES4CITY network launch, attendees will be presented with different perspectives from the RES4CITY hubs and GENERA initiative by five key speakers: 

Dr. Carla Montagud-Montalvá, Director of Cátedra Transición Energética Urbana at the Polytechnic University of Valencia 
Dr. Fabiano Pallonetto, Professor & Program Director of MSc in Business Analytics at Maynooth University – School of Business 
Dr. Henrik Barth, Associate Professor in Innovation Sciences at Halmstad University
Dr. Mattia de Rosa, Professor in Energy and Thermal Engineering at the University of Sassari 
Dr. Elisa Peñalvo-López, Scientific Researcher at the Polytechnic University of Valencia 
Following the Green Talks, a Climate Fresk workshop will take place.  

The Climate Fresk workshop is a scientific, creative, and collaborative workshop designed to raise awareness of climate change in a playful way. With scientific rigour and pedagogy, this tool makes it possible to quickly discover how climate ‘functions’ and the cause-effect of its imbalance. The workshop also provides the keys to understanding how to act effectively and stimulates creativity and group dynamics. By taking part, it will give those attending the opportunity to be empowered and educated on climate change.

VI BEHÖVER DIN hjälp med att kartlägga Mikroelektronikbranschens framtida behov!

In his presentation, Léo shared the current state of play of the European microelectronics industry in terms of skills needs: shortages, job profiles, technical and soft skills the most sought-after and summarized the key evolutions since 2020 using data collected within the METIS project. He also discussed the policy recommendations collected within METIS from key European stakeholders to tackle the skills shortage.
Finally, Léo presented the current initiatives ongoing to address the skills shortage: the METIS projects, the EU Chips Skills Alliance, and the Microelectronics Pact for Skills.
