Report on urgent skills needs per country and per sector

In this report we identified urgent skills needs fostered by the COVID-19 crisis and the emerging technologies, green and digital transition for agri-food and veterinary sector.

This study was based on available outputs from the Skills Panorama platform from CEDEFOP which integrates in one single portal data and information on skills needs and mismatches from EU, the ESCO database, the AER roundtable of April 2021, the EIP-Agri seminar on digital skills, the IOF2020 project  and all useful inputs from partners previous or on-going project on the subject (FIELDS, PLANET, SAGRI, ASKFOOD, FIT4FOOD, etc).

Update of database and platform

This document summarises the activity towards the collection of data and how the databases were structured. I-RESTART used the platform framework of the Erasmus+ Blueprint project FIELDS, which had already developed a database with the same objectives of data collection as the project I-RESTART. Some modifications were required to separate the inputs. The rationale behind this decision was due to the equal structure needed for the data collection, but the different nature of the partners and data collection required. Thus, FIELDS collected data mostly on agriculture, food industry and forestry sectors, with a strong focus on bioeconomy, sustainability and digitalisation fields; I-RESTART collected data from the animal production, veterinary and food industry sectors with a strong focus in further fields. Here the fields covered: Digitalisation, Sustainability and bioeconomy, Business and entrepreneurship, Soft skills, One-health, Sector specific emerging trends.
