Survey

Welcome to the survey of the GrEnFin project

In the attached PDF report you will find the results of the GrEnFIn stakeholders consultation. The survey has been online from February 11, to April 10 2020 and has been disseminated by the project partners within their networks. Overall, 198 responses have been gathered, representing a significant sample across four macro-categories of stakeholders: Financials, Producers, Industrials, Policymakers. The observed set is well distributed across ownership, international presence and European regions.
Results from the survey clearly shows the relevance of the energy transition for the respondents, highlighting that the phenomena is real, is now, and will bite more in the future. A detailed assessment of challenges stemming from the transition, both in the past/present and future, is provided in the report. Companies' preparedness and their feeling about workforce availability are assessed as well.
The relevance of skills related to Economics and Sustainability is clearly highlighted in the survey results, together with a request for soft skills training shared across the board. Hard skills can be structured in relevant groups, in order to create ductile professionals able to assess specific challenges across different industries and geographical contexts.
In the report, the perceived and often mentioned gap between Academia and Industry is investigated and discussed. While there is a general consensus around the existence of such gap, mainly due to an excessively theoretical focus of the Academia, we found a significant desire from companies to contribute to the educational process. The need and good will for closer collaboration between Academia and Industry is further highlighted in the final section, by a strong demand for Professional education.
