Important role for COMPETING

Caroline Nagtegaal, member of the European Parliament for Renew Europe, foresees an important role for the COMPETING project in making transport more sustainable, she says in an interview published in COMPETING’s newsletter. Caroline recently joint the projects Advisory Board. “We are in the middle of a discussion about making the transport sector more sustainable. As far as I am concerned, inland shipping plays a major role in this.“

‘‘COMPETING will lead to harmonized training,“ states Nagtegaal. “It thus contributes to greater labour mobility. Education should focus on the skills of the future. That way, inland shipping remains an attractive employer and an interesting sector to work in.’’
