Skills & Competences

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

Prioritising Lifelong Learning

Everyone should have the right to continuing professional development to maintain and acquire skills to remain in employment and manage the transition in the labour market. Many research findings and policy guidelines point to the need to close the digital skills shortage. What is missing is the application in practice and understanding of the value of continuing professional development.
Our objective is to raise awareness of lifelong learning opportunities as an investment in nurturing STEM professionals’ potential. This 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!

Past projects

As part of our ongoing commitment to create networks between STEM professionals, businesses, and academia we became a partner in the NordEnHub project which ran from 2018-2022

Development

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.

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.
