The essential of presented paper is to analyze the impact of the project manager´s age on the preference of key competences in the project practice regarding the petrochemical industry in EU countries. The primary method of data acquisition was electronic questioning. We used the International Competence Baseline version 4 as the theoretical basis for the analysis.
