DESCRIPTION:This Digital Deep Dive is about Europe’s digital skills panorama and untapped opportunities, as well as, fieldwork ideas and concrete initiatives that aim to answer the digital skill needs. We are well aware digital skills are paramount as technology is everywhere in our lives and societies. But can Europe really cater for the skill needs of digitising industries? At the current pace, Europe is fated to fail to reach the 2030 Digital Targets, with many citizens lagging in digital skills and industries struggling to find ICT specialists. During the panel discussion, our speakers will provide their views on the EU 2030 Digital Decade targets on digital skills, and the type of measures needed to hit these targets — diving into topics like micro-credentials and ILAs. In the second part of the event, participants will be able to follow parallel sessions where subject matter experts will present European projects such as the European Software Skills Alliance (ESSA), Women4IT (W4IT), Blockchain Skills for Europe (CHAISE), and the AI Skills Alliance (ARISA) and deep dive into thematic discussions on digital skills related to artificial intelligence, blockchain, software, and women in digital.
