ASSETs+ project organizes the workshop on the ASSETs+ Strategy for developing skills and competences for the Defence Sector. It will take place in a hybrid format at the University of Bordeaux Talence Campus, on November 24th, 09:00-10:30 CET.
The final ASSETs+ Skills Strategy, enriched with the contributions from this workshop, will be released in 2023, and it is meant to shape the European Commission’s future actions for the sectoral reskilling and upskilling. The main goal of this event is to present the preliminary ASSETs+ Skills Strategy addressing emerging technologies in the Defence sector, to validate the actions and to integrate additional suggestions to improve and finalize it.
The emerging and disruptive trends related to the technological domains of Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Autonomous Vehicle, C4ISTAR and Cybersecurity are calling for the reskilling and upskilling of professionals. This implies on one hand, the design and development of training programmes aligned with current and future technological industrial needs and on Defence industry skills needs and, on the other hand, the setting up of a qualification system based on the best practices in the European Defence industry. Moreover, these technologies allow leveraging on synergies between Defence and Civil sectors, to enhance Europe’s technological edge and support its industrial base in line with the Action plan on synergies between civil, defence and space industries.
