1st Education Career Fair EDU OFFSHORE WIND 2023 – Innovative career orientations for secondary school students To register visit website: EDU OFFSHORE WIND 2023 The education fair is a response to the great interest in the offshore wind industry in Poland. Educating young people is one of the key conditions for the development and success of this sector. The demand for new but already qualified employees in the near future is estimated at several thousand, and in the longer term up to 60,000 people. In order to fill this gap, we need to think today about the generation that is still learning in primary and secondary schools. Hence the idea of the trade fair as a venue for direct contact and discussions with future employees and employers in the offshore sector in a friendly atmosphere. The development of competencies at secondary school level, as well as already at primary school level, is given priority within the activities of the Pomeranian Platform for Offshore Wind Energy Development in the Baltic Sea. This is confirmed by the initiative of the Pomeranian Centre of Competence for Offshore Renewable Energy in Rumia, which is now responsible for running the education and information programme. The EDU OFFSHORE WIND trade fair to be held on 14-15 March 2023 in Gdansk is the first event dedicated to offshore wind energy in Poland on such a scale. The event is organised by representatives of the Pomeranian Platform for Offshore Wind Energy Development on the Baltic Sea (Rumia Invest Park sp. z o.o., Co-Made Sp. z o.o, and the Foundation for Innovative Offshore Energy Industry) together with the Gdańsk International Fair S.A. The fair will be held under the patronage of the Self-Government of Pomorskie Voivodeship and the City of Gdansk.
