European Year of Skills: Meet DLR

Throughout the European Year of Skills 2023, we publish a video series on our YouTube channel. Watch as we share personal experiences of our Founding Members, partners, and staff through video messages, encouraging young people to build their careers in rail.

Learn directly from people in the industry what are the skills you can develop while working in rail, what skills are necessary to have and what skills are used daily. This way we are putting skills centre-stage and promoting a mindset of reskilling and upskilling. We are bringing organisations and people together to share their experiences and insights.

Listen to Ms Svenja Hainz, working in the Brussels Office of our Founding Member DLR and Mr James Bell, Research Engineer at DLR, as they talk about their skills. DLR is the Federal Republic of Germany’s research centre for aeronautics and space. The company conducts research and development activities in the fields of aeronautics, space, energy, transport, security and digitalisation. The German Space Agency at DLR plans and implements the national space programme on behalf of the federal government.
