-What are the qualification profiles of employees needed in the future to allow the on-going expansion of the European PV industry?
-How should the higher education institutions react?
An input-output model with special emphasis on the production structures of the different stages of PV production, installation, operation and maintenance will be developed. This will be based on the available input-output tables of key member countries of the EU. The model will allow the calculation of the expected numbers of net created jobs by the European PV industry. Different market scenarios e.g. up to 2020 will be fed into this model.
