Our activities

In order to achieve its aims, UNIEP's main activities consist in:

Since 2015, after a wide consultation of its members and stakeholders in the painting sector, UNIEP has developed a new strategy for the next future. The three major problems detected at EU level are:
  • shortage of young professionals / lack of young people entering the painter’s profession
  • lack of quality in education and training 
  • slow incorporation of new products or systems into the market.

UNIEP is committed in:
  • developing networks gathering painting contractors, national VET institutes and manufacturers
  • developing communication and promotion tools and activities to value the profession, jobs and training opportunities in the painting sector at EU level
  • developing training tools and activities to improve initial and advanced training as well as apprenticeship schemes in painting, and updating the skills of staff working in the painting sector.
