The automotive industry is one of the main driving forces for the European economy, provides employment to 12 million workers. But the sector is facing many structural changes, including stricter emission standards and decarbonisation as part of new mobility concepts. A high quality of education, skills and training is the basis to ensure the strong position of the automotive industry in the future: knowledge, innovation, R&D and competence development are mainly important. The future jobs will have a different mix of skills and requires permanent upgrading of skill levels and competences. The European DRIVES project is dealing with this challenge.
