Legislative frameworks for enhancing demand of sustainability skills in building sector

International INSTRUCT project - Online workshop

The European construction sector faces unprecedented challenges to achieve ambitious energy efficiency objectives, that can be met only if successful training initiatives and supporting policy instruments are put in place, acting as a springboard to stimulate the demand for energy efficiency skills.

As part of the H2020 project INSTRUCT, this workshop will propose to participants involved in legislative framework at regional, national or european level to speak up to:

  • share status of legislative frameworks related to sustainability competences and skills in different countries​ and regions,
  • share best practices examples and discuss ideas, methods and roadmaps,
  • show the policy steering landscape from the point of view of workers qualifications.


  • Explore ideas to improve policy instruments and incentives based on shared cases​.
  • Identify​ what are the training needs, how skills are demanded in each instrument.
  • Assess gaps between real and expected skills in energy efficiency in Europe.


Authorities and representatives from trade unions and specific organizations.

Horizon 2020 project INSTRUCT

The Horizon 2020 project INSTRUCT has started in June 2020 with a Consortium of 8 Partners from 7 European countries. Its aim is to act at a market level by providing an operational framework and set of services in order to:

  • increase the number of skilled building professionals and construction workers along with the whole value chain, 
  • pave the way to legislative changes by supporting public authorities and industrial stakeholders for the development of new legislative frameworks.
