One of the EU’s goals is to stimulate demand for sustainable energy skills in the building sector, and increase the number of skilled building professionals across the building design, operation and maintenance value chain. The EU-funded BUS-GoCircular project aims to tackle the challenges associated with stimulating this demand, and through capacity building boost the number of capable professionals in the field.
Developing a circular construction skills qualification framework.
Stimulating market demand for circularity skills.
Developing recognition schemes and conducting pilot courses.
Improving the reputation of the construction sector and attracting women and youth to circular skills professions.
Expanding BUS-GoCircular at national and EU-level by developing and implementing a communication and replication strategy.
Measured, quantitative outcomes / project impact
The project will develop and implement a circular construction skills qualification framework specifically focusing on multifunctional green roofs, facades and interior elements. Specific activities concerning companies, real estate, homeowners and local authorities will be developed, including support towards legislative changes through circular green procurement and recognition of skills.
