E-Cubed Islands are coordinator for the WESTMED initiative. They recently contributed to a networking event held in Valletta on 'Blue Skills: Bridging the Skills Gap through Education and Ocean Literacy'.

The event was successful in bringing together the views of the captains of industry and academia who identified skills shortages and possible solutions to the skills gap shortages that are afflicting the industry. The event aimed to encourage a culture of closer cooperation between all stakeholders leading to a scenario where all dots are joined with a view to eliminate, as far as possible, the labour market frictions that hamper employers from their much-needed talent and skills that sustain their business models.
