12th BUILD UP Skills European exchange meeting – 09- 10 December 2020

Leveraging the skills of building professionals to deliver on the European Green Deal – 9/12/2020

This event organised with the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) aimed to provide an opportunity for an exchange of views between stakeholders and EU policymakers on the role of skilled building professionals in delivering the European Green Deal, in particular the so-called ‘renovation wave’ of public and private buildings.

A policy panel took stock of the progress achieved and efforts needed towards the 2030 targets. Parallel sessions discussed the role of skilled professionals in constructing and managing highly efficient and more digitalised buildings and delivering high-quality renovations. Panel discussions investigated the way forward, in particular how the contribution of skilled building professionals can be made more visible and valued by the market.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was organised fully online as a web-streaming.
