Enabling skills for the industrial decarbonisation supply chain (ESIDS)

Background

The purpose of this project is to enable development of the core and supply chain workforce needed to deliver Industrial Decarbonisation across the UK’s Industrial Clusters. This goal will be achieved through establishing a mechanism whereby the skills requirement can be determined and by promoting pathways to realising these skills. This process will not only help deliver a prepared workforce for the industrial clusters but will drive supply chain development and form a coherent community between Government, academia, training providers and industry. It will also afford a skills mechanism which may be exploited to the benefit of other industrial grand challenge areas.

The project will be led by University of Chester but will be executed for IDRIC and the industrial clusters, who may subsequently adopt the ongoing skills analysis and delivery process. Whilst skills may have been considered locally at some level within the clusters, there has been no attempt to realise this data and process nationally. This will require the cooperation and collaboration of Government, industrial clusters, academic institutes and the industrial supply chains. As such, this is an ambitious yet critical project step for IDRIC and the clusters.
