Project Summary:

Various researches have shown that there is a clear lack of skilled logistics employees on all organizational levels in Central Baltic countries. The current project aims at addressing this challenge in cooperation with representatives from Swedish, Finnish, Estonian, and Latvian universities offering courses in logistics to better match the current and future needs of the Central Baltic businesses and labor markets.

The project aims at individuating which are the current and future logistic skills needed in the Central Baltic job market. These needs are consequently compared to the current, university level offering of professional, logistics education within the Central Baltic area to identify which complementary courses would equip students with these skills. Consequently, the participating universities address the emerging development needs by creating a joint study package (18 ECTS BSc and 15 ECTS MSc ) and piloting it in cooperation with Central Baltic student groups. 

The project results in a better logistics education to match the needs of Central Baltic enterprises as well as in more employees possessing skills and competences needed in the labor markets. Better logistic education will also help personnel already employed in logistics companies to be more efficient and integrated in the Central Baltic labor market.
