Project Description: 

After the Aquaret project, Aqua-RET2 intends to continue the dissemination activities and transfer of technology in the sector. Aqua-RET2’s aims and objectives are 1) to identify the labor market needs of the marine renewable sector and ancillary businesses on a sectoral and geographical basis 2) to select, adapt and further develop existing material from Aqua-RET to meet identified labor market needs 3) to integrate the new innovative training content into the work place by piloting new training programs from which outputs will be transferred geographically and between sectors to ensure that training is more responsive to changes in labor market needs 4) to facilitate the transfer of skills from ancillary sectors to the marine renewables sector.
