Fostering Tomorrow's Talents: Filling the IT Talent Gap
 

AmCham is pleased to invite members to an upcoming event entitled “Fostering Tomorrow’s Talents: Filling the IT Talent Gap” which will focus on the lack of skilled IT talent in Denmark. Currently, Denmark lacks approximately 3,000 IT specialists, and an increasing number of companies are having serious challenges in recruiting employees with strong science competences. In order to secure Denmark’s digital growth, it is urgent that we offer more in-depth education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM-qualifications).

Speakers include:

  • Mette Reissmann, Spokesperson Education & Research for the Social Democratic Party
  • Jørgen Jakobsen, Vice President, North Region, DXC Technology
  • Brian Mikkelsen, Danish Minister for Industry, Business & Financial Affairs
  • Mads Tofte, Vice Chancellor, IT University of Copenhagen


Be sure to join us for this relevant discussion.

We look forward to welcoming you!

The AmCham Team
