Workshop on Education, Training and Skills in Brussels

The European Commission cordially invites you to a "Workshop on Education, Training and Skills: Connecting students and employers - the case of electronics" that will be held in Brussels on 13 October 2015 from 9h00 to 16h00. It is organised by Directorate A of the European Commission Directorate General for Communications Systems, Content and Technology. The workshop is held back-to-back with the workshop on 'Digital Skills and entrepreneurship in the Digital Revolution Era: from EU funding opportunities to job creation' which is part of the OPEN DAYS – European Week of Regions and Cities event.

At first, we will address the aims of the workshop, the key skills requirements for KETs focusing on micro-/nano electronics, students' choices and motivation to pursue a career in this field, and the sector skills alliance for electronics. The morning session will conclude with a panel discussion on the role of industry in sustaining the skills ecosystems. The afternoon World Café session will be an opportunity for interaction and discussions on the following topics: young people in the digital job world, a taxonomy of skills for electronics and fostering skills development.
