On September 6, AmCham, in cooperation with Elite Partner DXC Technology, held an event on the important issue of educating future IT talents.

Denmark is currently lacking 3,000 IT specialists and projections indicate that with the current development we will lack 19,000 IT professionals by 2030. Therefore, the business community is under pressure to stay competitive and many have sought to attract foreign talents in order to fill their vacant positions because of the lack of homegrown talent.

At the event, representatives from the business community, political decision makers and educators gathered to discuss how to foster tomorrow's IT talents, and which initiatives are needed to ensure a greater talent pool in the future. Key discussion points included how to encourage young people to enroll in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) educations, in addition to integrating IT education into primary schooling.  

Speakers included:

  • Brian Mikkelsen, Minister of Business
  • Mette Reissmann, Social Democratic Party
  • Jørgen Jakobsen, DXC Technology
  • Mads Tofte, IT University of Denmark
