Digital Skills Summit Awards Spain 2021: Forum Alliance for the Development of Digital Talent

On Location,
Virtual Live

The Digital Skills Summit Awards Spain 2021: Forum Alliance for the Development of Digital Talent event is organised by AMETIC, an association representing the digital technology industry in Spain. Digitalisation has greatly impacted how work is carried out yet it is estimated that by 2020 54% of employees in Europe will need to reskill or upskill their knowledge of digital skills. For companies, it is increasingly important that employees have the relevant digital skills and "soft" skills so that they can learn and adapt to the new challenges digitalisation brings. Alongside this, remote work requires different skills and management leading to continuous lifelong learning. 

Agenda and speakers

This event aims to address these problems by creating a space for dialogue between ICT companies and other stakeholders such as universities, business schools, training centres, foundations, sector associations, and companies from other sectors interest in the digital transformation. This edition of the forum will focus on the importance of digital skills to improve employability and inclusion. The event will include a welcoming speech from:

  • Pedro Mier, President of AMETIC
  • Nicolas Schmidt,  European Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights
  • Yolanda Díaz Pérez, Second Deputy Prime Minister of Spain and Minister of Labour and Social Economy of the Government of Spain

There will be a keynote speech from Fabrizia Benini, Head of Unit Digital Economy and Skills at the European Commission, and round table talks around employability, boosting digital competencies in youths, and strengthening digital skills in teachers. Participants will also have the opportunity to attend other talks around women in STEM, employability and inclusion. This event is a great opportunity to network with other stakeholders and explore how digital upskilling and reskilling is possible for various sectors.
