TRANSIT (TRANSITion to sustainable future through training and education) is a project funded by the European Union under the program Horizon Europe and UK Research and Innovation Horizon Europe Guarantee scheme that aims to provide sustainable training and re-skilling programmes for current and future generations on a multidisciplinary approach in renewable energy.
Through support measures and activities TRANSIT will dedicate its resources and educational materials to target groups of policymakers, regulators, innovators, industry, trade associations, universities, and local communities, covering the various sectorial strategies under the European Green Deal. Towards this end, the project will establish (i) success stories and practices that are catalogued, retained, and promoted in terms of circularity and sustainable aspects, (ii) will develop a hands-on training approach to revamp industry-academic curricula, and (iii) will establish a web-enabled platform for the innovative and interactive multidisciplinary programme from educational campaigns to hands-on courses.
It is expected that the project’s activities will have significant and direct contributions to the EU’s strategic objectives and to the European Green Deal, as the project’s solutions will increase the penetration of Renewable Energy by bridging the gaps between technological advancement and impediments posed by lack of training and current skills.
The project’s partnership consists of policymakers, major industries and trade associations, European universities, and community engagement organizations, that will work together to address the challenges and opportunities for renewable energy uptake and large-scale deployment.
The project’s coordinator is the Foundation for Innovation and Research (Malta) and partners include the University of Manchester (United Kingdom), the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje (North Macedonia), the Sveuciliste u Zagrebu Fakultet Elektrotehnike i Racunarstva (Croatia), the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (Spain), the Javna Ustanova Univerzitet Crne Gore Podgorica (Montenegro), the University of Nis- Faculty of Electronic Engineering (Serbia), the University of Cyprus (Cyprus), the Cyprus Energy Agency (Cyprus), the ЕВН Македонија (North Macedonia), the АД Скопје (North Macedonia), the Manchester Climate Change Agency CIC (United Kingdom), and the Asociacion de Empresas de Energias Renovables – APPA (Spain).
