The European conference on digital and key enabling technologies skills aims to become an interactive platform for exchanging opinions and co-creating solutions on the skills issues in key enabling technologies (KETs) and ICT and to bring together the representatives of all key stakeholder groups. The conference is organised in the context of two initiatives of the European Commission, namely KETs skills and e-leadership initiatives.
The KETs skills initiative, launched in January 2014, focuses on the needs of employers with regard to KETs skills and the ways to best satisfy those needs. The initiative builds on the European strategy for KETs and the work of the High Level Group on KETs and their recommendations on skills.
The e-Leadership initiative, in turn, started in 2013 and focused on the leadership needs of decision-makers and professional leaders at larger enterprises in the digital economy.
