Future Skills & Work-life

No matter how much we know, there’s always something new to learn!

Prioritising Lifelong Learning

We believe that everyone should have the right to continuing professional development to maintain and acquire skills to remain employable and manage transitions in the future labour market. This is particularly important because of the increasing deficit of ICT and engineering professionals in the Nordic region. Our objective is to promote lifelong learning opportunities in the Nordics as an investment in nurturing STEM professionals’ potential.
Ensuring adequate lifelong learning provisions requires a change of mindset, adjustments in the institutional management process, political and financial support, strategic partnerships, and ensuring that these changes benefit the individual learners. The lifelong learning complexity can only be solved in partnership.

ANE is committed to playing a central role in this partnership!


Sustainable Limitless Work – Challenges, Opportunities and Future Scenarios

Work-life has changed, and engineers equipped with smartphones and computers can work practically anywhere and at any time. But how limitless can managers and employees be while maintaining health and wellbeing?

This report outlines a direction of travel with recommendations on how limitless work through regulation can address the risk of negative impacts, become more sustainable, and build on the positive opportunities that limitless work also offers.

Competences for a Sustainable Future

Across the Nordics, governments have ambitious plans to address climate change through a green and digital transition of society. And many Nordic businesses regard this development as an opportunity to become international frontrunners in developing valuable climate and energy technology. Engineers and STEM professionals with the right skills are crucial in this transition.

Continuing Professional

Continuing Professional Development, CPD during the career path is not a luxury invention. Everyone should have the right to a sound educational background and CPD to maintain and acquire skills to remain in employment and manage the transitions in the labour market. Although the Nordic region scores high in terms of innovation and new technology, the talent shortage is becoming a sad reality.

Past Events
