EU Conference

Info

in cooperation with the Representation of the European Commission in Slovakia.  

The conference has already six years of success of the Representation of the European Commission in Slovakia and four years of interesting discussions between business leaders, Slovak Government and European Commission.

The Slovak business community – together with political leaders, representatives of public institutions and academia as well as experts from the European Commission – will address two key questions:

  • What skills are critical to make Slovakia competitive on the European and global stages?
  • How can we resolve the current shortage of skilled labor in Slovakia?

We will also address the following questions:

  • How can we match the requirements of Industry 4.0 with the education system in Slovak reality?
  • What actions does the Slovak government plan to adopt to increase digital literacy?
  • How will the necessary digital skills be implemented in the educational process?
  • How can the public and private sectors work together to improve the necessary digital skills to keep Slovakia competitive?
  • Which success stories from EU  member states can be transformed into Slovak reality?
