10.00 – 11.15 Panel I: Impact of digital transformation on the labour market, employers and local government.
A strong digital economy driven by Europeans with digital skills is crucial for innovation, growth, job creation and European competitiveness. At the same time, over 70% of European companies say that the lack of staff with the right digital skills is an obstacle to investment. The diffusion of digital technologies has a huge impact on the labour market and the type of skills needed in the economy and society. Member States, businesses, training providers, the European Commission and other organizations need to work together to close the digital skills gap. How are production and services changing under the influence of digital transformation? What does this mean for the Pomeranian labour market? What will be the expectations of employers from Pomerania towards new employees in the coming years and how do local governments and their schools react to these expectations? Presentation of the NEF+ project co-financed by the Erasmus+ program.

11.45 – 13.00 Panel II: The role of schools, teachers and students in adapting to digital transformation.
Education and training must respond to the challenges and realities of the 21st century: meet the needs of students and help them cope with the feelings of stress and anxiety experienced in the face of the climate crisis, the pandemic and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. 95% of respondents to the Open Public Consultation of Digital Education Action Plan believe that the COVID-19 pandemic is a turning point in the way technology is used in education and training (Digital Education Action Plan, Open Public Consultation, 2020). How can the school equip students with the competences needed to shape a more sustainable economy and society? How can it use attractive digital tools for this purpose? What are the barriers to digital and online education? Presentation of the digital tools of the SPARKS project co-financed by the Erasmus+ program.
