EUPORTRAItS partner CFLI has launched a website that provides a panorama of the portworkers professional profiles.
The website, whose domain is lavorareinporto.it, gives the possibility for the people who work daily at the port to explain their jobs and the skills required to do it. Andrea Condotta, CFLI Project Manager, highlighted the usefulness for young people that may be interested in working at port industry for future employments.
In this sense the European Commission has repeatedly pointed out certain constraints related to maritime employment and education that must be solved and, among others, those related to a lack of attractiveness, knowledge and visibility of the maritime economy and its career potential.
The website contains a series of videos dedicated to port work (quay crane operators, lashing workers, overhead travelling crane portainer operators, mooring operator, etc). The interviews with port workers were collected at the port of Venice and therefore they are in Italian with English subtitles.
The website was created as part of the European project Intermodadria, which aims to increase the competitiveness of short sea shipping and to strengthen the attractiveness of intermodal transport solutions serving the ports and logistics centers in the medium and lower Adriatic area.
Intermodadria is funded by the IPA Adriatic Cross-border Cooperation Programme and involves a partnership of public and private institutions from five countries of the Adriatic area such as Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Italy and Croatia.
