Blue Career Centre of Eastern Mediterranean and Black Sea


The proposed Career Centre for the Eastern Mediterranean Sea (EM) and Black Sea (BS), aims to attract young people and experienced workers and fill existing skills' gaps by supporting activities that will increase employability in key Blue sectors of the region: Maritime Transport (shipping, ports, ship-repairs and shipbuilding), cruise and nautical tourism, aquaculture and offshore oil and gas.

The successful operation of the first Blue Career Centre for the Eastern Mediterranean and the Black Sea will set an example and model for all other sub-sea basins in view of a future European Network of Blue Career Centres that will bring together all the stakeholders of the various European Marine and Maritime Clusters in a common effort to close the skills gap, tackle unemployment and make “blue careers” more attractive to the young people of Europe and its neighbourhood.
