Introduction: “Entrepreneurs, You have to break into Schools and Universities” – Maria Fernanda Rollo, former Portugal Higher Education secretary of state, in Observador.

The demographic crisis in Europe and the fourth industrial revolution pose a serious problem for companies and universities to meet the immediate and future needs of skilled profiles, particularly in technologically intensive industries such as the Naval sector.

The first ones to integrate them, the second ones to form them according to the quantitative and qualitative needs of the market. Therefore, the linkage and joint work between them will need to be strengthened and involve an increasingly “out of the box” approach.

In addition, the excellence of technical training it’s scarce to respond to the market skills demand. Schools and Universities (together with companies) must contribute to the student’s personal development, preparing them for the social challenges that integration and professional development entails.

At SSI Conference 2019 EMEA, we gathered experts from across shipbuilding in Lisbon, Portugal to get their straightforward, easily implemented, takes on the topics that impact our industry most.
