ICTNOVA Workshop
 
Creative thinking, invention and innovation skills empowering ICT specialists to create value and sustainable business. 

In 2016 the European Union announced the 21st Century Skills Agenda. The agenda is aligned to the Europe 2020 foresight document in which Innovation is described as a crucial pillar for future sustainable development. A workshop is being organised by the eSkills Malta Foundation in collaboration with the Innovation Generation Centre to present and discuss this subject. During the workshop a presentation will be given on Creative Thinking, Invention and Innovation Skills and their relevance to the ICT industry. 

To thrive in today's innovation driven economy, ICT workers need more than just technical skills, they need competences like collaboration, creativity and problem solving. What are these competences, and how do we empower our teams to generate value and develop sustainable businesses? A panel discussion will follow encouraging the audience to participate.
