European Shipyard Week 201129th September 2011

Shipyard Week

The past 2 years have been a historic for the maritime sector, including for shipbuilding. CESA is convinced that the potential of the maritime engineering and manufacturing sector will continue to grow and tremendous opportunities lie ahead. There is growing awareness of the potential of our oceans and seas and critical role of shipbuilding in achieving Europe2020 targets, i.e. with regards to energy sufficiency and mitigation of climate change. Maritime tourism, renewable energies and deep sea mining are just a few examples of existing prospects - but all require innovative, top performing hardware. A precondition of this is to have the best available talents for the industry and a continuous influx of fresh ideas intro the stream. For the past years the European Shipyard Week messages reached thousands of European youngsters.

The European Shipyard Week will take place again this year across Europe to inform the public of the exciting career opportunities in shipbuilding and the critical role they could play in helping Europeans reach the true potential of their maritime heritage. The campaign will be launched on Thursday 29 September 2011 in Brussels with a conference under the well-known logo "Sea your future!" The event will bring together young maritime professionals, industry stakeholders, members of the European Commission, the European Parliament, representatives of Europe's shipbuilding regions etc.

Answers to questions like "Do we have the necessary technology, skills or educational programs to meet our ambitious targets? Where are laying the most striving career opportunities? Where are laying the new frontiers of professional development in the maritime field? What is maritime youth role in shaping our future?" will be discussed. The launching event in Brussels will be followed by the traditional Next Generation Get Together evening promoting increased interaction among young professionals and strengthen their connections with the maritime community. Events across Europe will follow the launching conference in Brussels.

Very good presentations, various and interesting topics, but, unfortunately, the speakers didn’t concentrate on young engineers’ needs, challenges for young generation, how their future looks in shipbuilding industry, how the politicians support them and their companies in order to secure the working places in this field.

Alina Liteanu , Contract Management Team , 29

It feels good to see that there still are people really passionate and motivated about their jobs in this industry and all related fields. I would like to believe that this is only the beginning and with support from CESA, EU and why not local, we can grow bigger. There is potential and with some help we can do it.

Pieter Huyskens, Research Engineer, 30

It was very interesting to learn about the status of European shipbuilding and the threats of the big Asian shipbuilders. It was nice to get an inside view in the European decision making and to discuss the motivations for the new safety and environmental regulations.

Matthias Hellberg,  Engineer, 25

It was interesting to listen to representatives of other companies and thinking about the future and possibilities for Europe. The presenters gave us a good overview of their products and future strategies.
