Hans is Vice President, European Union Liaison, Shell International. Over recent years, with his colleagues in the European Roundtable of Industrialists (ERT), Hans has played an influential role in strengthening the evidence base on strategic skills shortages in Europe, particularly in the STEM subjects, and the importance of business-schools links as a means of securing the human resource essential to Europe’s future prosperity.
