On 24 June 2015, the 2nd meeting of the European Automotive Skills Council took place at FIEV offices in Paris. Project partners (CLEPA, ETRMA and industriAll) and supporters (ACEA) met with EASC members and potential members from France, UK, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Slovakia, the Netherlands and Germany.
The participants discussed the upcoming Automotive Skills Survey, which will help to gain insight into current skills gaps, shortages and mismatches in the European automotive landscape and how to remedy this situation by sharing information and best practices amongst European partners. Two national Skills Studies were presented by Pascal Marlier from BIPE, who were commissioned by the French Observatory for Metallurgy (UIMM) to investigate into the skills situation of the French automotive industry; and by Sam White from Miller Research, who wrote a study on the skills situation of the advanced manufacturing sector in Wales for SEMTA, the UK Automotive Skills Council. Both studies present interesting approaches to researching skills and competences in important industrial sectors. An example of corporate best practices to handle skills gaps and shortages was presented by Francisco Alvarez from Gestamp in Spain.
The next EASC meeting will take place on 1 October 2015 in Rome. The final conference of the European Automotive Skills Council will take place in February 2016 in Brussels.
