WorldSkills Conference 2017

Skills strategies for a globalized world

Connecting creativity and technology. How do they collaborate and coexist?

17 October 2017 at 08:30 in Conference Room A

In partnership with WorldSkills Abu Dhabi 2017

One of this conference’s central themes – matching skillsets with future and current needs – comes into sharp focus in this examination of the relationship between creativity and technological innovation. Two leaders, one from the creative sector, and one with a high-tech background discuss the tensions and synergies between new technologies and creativity. They will also ask how important a ‘traditional’ skillset is today for the new generation, and for the economy as a whole, as we prepare for the skills of the future.
