IDENTIFYING THE NEEDS OF THE STAKEHOLDERS OF THE BLUE ECONOMY REGARDING THE INCLUSION OF YOUNG PEOPLE IN THE LABOR MARKET
"Blue Economy" represents a sustainable use of marine resources to ensure economic growth, job growth, an improvement in living standards and the health of marine ecosystems. At European level, there is a lack of correlation between labour demand and supply that highlight poor communication and cooperation between education levels and industry levels. Given the lack of qualified blue-chip workers in the Black Sea and the Eastern Mediterranean region as well as the poor knowledge of career opportunities offered by the maritime sector, it is aimed at supporting strategic sectors, being chosen due to the high potential for innovation and growth such as maritime transport, offshore oil and gas industry, cruise tourism and aquaculture. This research seeks to identify the requirements of the private sector related to human resource in terms of training, technical and behavioural competences, as well as the presentation of the main challenges faced by the workforce. The present study is channelled to facilitate the access of young people to the labour market in the sectors of interest taking into account the demands of potential employers.
