Under the patronage of the President of Malta the Foundation for Transport was created to facilitate the transition to green technologies in all modes of transport. The foundation was co-founded by five organisations:
The collective goal is to provide aide to companies to change their business models and train (future) employees as well as re-train existing professionals. The Foundation will also contribute to the coordination of existing initiatives including those of the Ministry of Education (e.g. Teen Science Café), award schemes and initiatives focused on boosting women participation in STEM.
Transport has a myriad of STEM careers and to this effect, the Foundation is acting as a bridge between the education and industry to train and retrain the employees and identifying possibilities for future generations to work in transport. The foundation also cooperates with European Institute of Innovation and Technology and its Mobility Hub in Malta to enhance further this experience.
On a national level, the foundation, together with government, industry and education, is involved in designing campaigns to explain the impact of new technologies in transport on lifestyles, mobility, perceptions, work life balance, clean environment and so on. In other words: explaining on how science can improve our lifestyles.
