breaking boundaries for human capital development and social innovation
This year's conference challenge is "breaking boundaries for human capital development and social innovation." The objective is to explore how digital technologies, and in particular ePortfolios and digital identity, are transforming individual, organisational and community learning and development, creating an opportunity for the emergence of new models and paradigms in the field of learning, employment and social inclusion, contributing to finding the solution to the challenges we are facing today, and will be facing tomorrow, in building an inclusive and sustainable knowledge economy and society
The conference lasts 3 days, each day providing a specific focus on the different issue with keynote speakers and workshop leaders.
