Karen Janssen

My name is Karen Janssen, I am 34 years old and I live in Rotterdam. I work for the municipality of Rotterdam and I am mainly concerned with the work that will come as a result of the energy transition. How many people are needed to realize the transition, what skills do they need and how do we ensure that enough people from the region are willing and able to work in this area?
