'TECH-CLINIC SST proposal is aimed at implementing Commissioner Potocnick's vision of the Knowledge Triangle, based on research/innovation/education, by targeting Education and young generations. The expected impact is to have young man and woman highly qualified attracted by surface transport research when time comes to direct their career and identification job opportunities at the service of European Industries in surface transport. European Surface Transport Industrial leadership relies on competency, know-how, and collaboration. Faced with such a urgent need, TECH-CLINIC SST project proposes in this way to enrol a pioneer way of communication and stimulating campaigns on Surface Transport Research results by targeting for the first time young people, focused on all major research priority lines defined for surface transport: greening, corridors and urban mobility, safety and security, competitiveness, by involving the major stakeholders from industry, academia and society. The 18 months project will therefore map Surface Transport Industry knowledge needs on Human skills and competencies in meeting their research and innovation needs, in rail, road and waterborne (WP1); it follows the creation of Technological Clinics by meeting Industry and young people to stimulate their cooperation at an early stage before they step in work market (WP2); that should be implemented by multicultural and multi-sciences 'Cafes Scientifiques' (WP3); Dissemination will play key role throughout all Work Packages of the project, being extension of such campaign to other than the consortium partners, will be assured at the end of the project, supported by an impact assessment (WP4). Visibility of Surface Transport Research Projects results, taken from FPs, will be at the core of the information supplied to young people. By using an integrated approach to Surface Transport as a system; being rail, road, maritime, freight and passengers from vehicle to user and infrastructure.'
Europe's transport industry provides more than 10 million jobs across a number of related sectors, including services, equipment and infrastructure. However, the competitiveness of transport operators, who have emerged from an extensive period of restructuring, needs to be strengthened to ensure that the industry retains high levels of long-term employment.
A shortage of qualified personnel has become apparent in the rail and road transport sectors. Given the current high levels of unemployment within the EU this anomaly indicates a serious mismatch between the education system and the requirements of Surface Transport Industry (STI).
The Tech-clinic SST project was set up under the FP7-Transport Programme to make students more aware of the challenges to be faced by the STI in the near future. The project highlights the innovative nature of the industry in developing and applying new technologies and emphasises the educational, research and career opportunities on offer.
Work experience, promotion of entrepreneurial spirit and other awareness raising initiatives are being conducted under the auspices of Tech-clinic SST. The project has also supported SMEs in mapping their specific knowledge requirements and contributed to finding solutions for meeting these needs. The consortium has also made SMEs aware of the importance of collaborating with highly skilled young people, who can contribute significantly to the businesses development and competitiveness.
Two main activities were undertaken by the Tech-clinic SST initiative. The first involved the creation of 'Technological Clinics' where students met with STI representatives to share knowledge and information. This was conducted before the young people entered the job market.
The second activity involved 'Cafes Scientifiques' which addressed school and university students in five EU Member States about the importance of surface transport in society. Both activities will facilitate knowledge transfer between enterprises, universities and students and contribute to solving problems highlighted by participating businesses and organisations.
An increase in the number and quality of students working in the STI will result in a win - win situation. Young people will be able to carve out a successful long-term career in a dynamic industry that will benefit from their skills and enthusiasm.
