The workshop will take place in Brussels, 13 October 2015.
The workshop 'Education, Training and Skills: Connecting students and employers - the case of electronics' will be held from 9:30 to 16:00, on 13 October 2015.
The aim of the workshop is to discuss concrete measures that can be implemented using existing instruments including HORIZON 2020 or the sector skills alliance, an initiative designed to promote European cooperation within a specific sector of the economy. The workshop also aims to discuss the effective means to better connect supply and demand of the workforce as well as to set out the enabling conditions to bring these closer together.
A particular focus will be on connecting to young people and explore
relatively novel features such as maker communities/'hardware coding'
and a new taxonomy on skills in the case of electronics. The context of
the workshop is the implementation of the Industrial Strategy for Electronics in Europe and the Digital Single Market Strategy for Europe.
Further details on the registration procedures for this workshop will be advertised soon.
