IT Professionalism Online Conference

Date: 12/10/2020

The current COVID-19 pandemic coupled with fast-moving digital technology and a lack of digital competence in SMEs are all putting pressure on today’s IT industry professionals and practitioners. Join the IT Professionalism Online Conference and learn how organisations can tackle the challenges related to IT staff and how the e-Competence Framework (e-CF) can help advance their skill sets.

The IT Professionalism Online Conference is co-hosted with our partners eSkills Malta Foundation and the Irish Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition and includes keynote speakers representing the European Commission as well as other public and private sector stakeholders. Discussions will focus on the initiatives that can be taken to advance digital skills and competences in Europe. This online event is organised ahead of a larger, face-to-face event to be held in early 2021.
