Workshop on the ASSETs+ Strategy for developing skills and competences for the Defence Sector
Online, 16th December 2021 – 15:30 to 17:30 CET
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 EC Action plan on synergies between civil, defence and space industries.
Thus, the scope of the Workshop will be the identification of the actions and practices to achieve these goals, fostering a discussion about the actions related to the pillars of the strategy, represented on the side in the seat belt.
The expected result is a series of recommendations for each action proposed in the discussion tables.
A good quality of the results could be achieved only with a strong cooperation among the all the stakeholders involved. Therefore, the involvement of external experts, such as policy makers (at European, National and Local levels), SMEs, Standard bodies, Workers and Learners, will strengthen the heterogeneous ASSETs+ Consortium (that includes Universities, VET providers, Companies, Sectoral Organizations, and Accreditation, certification, qualification and research foundation).
