On 4 December 2017 in Gothenburg, Sweden, the workshop on Educating Professionals for Boosting Personal & Business Values will be held. This is an interactive workshop about overcoming the challenges of developing relevant education that appeals to qualified professionals while boosting value for individuals, organisations and companies.

The driver of technology change together with societal expectations on the international Raw Material sector are opportunities for companies to innovate. To realise this innovation potential individuals, enterprises and higher education institutes need to further develop the talents of the qualified professionals working in their organisations. However, organisations are finding it a challenge to continually renewing the competences of their professional talent and lately also to even motivate talented personell to stay in a position for more than a few years.

The Lifelong Learning (LLL) concept has therefore emerged as a means to meet industry needs as well as educate and reach out to professionals. However, providing Lifelong learning also calls for innovative ways of demonstrating the value of continuing education for qualified professionals.

This workshop within the EIT RawMaterials community therefore aims to stimulate ideas, create new synergies and bring together technology and training providers with end users with a view of stimulating creative discussions and innovative thinking around professional training.

As a participant in the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Create a new network within the professional education field
  • Be inspired by technological approaches and their innovative potential in professional education
  • Discuss hot topics and challenges in professional education
  • Find partners to enhance the success of your project ideas in the next EIT RawMaterials KAVA Call 5.

The event will be organised as a world café and the discussion topics are enclosed below.

It will be chaired by Therese Bejgarn, Business Developer at the CLC North, and will be co-moderated by Elodie Labonne, Chalmers Technical University, and Denise McCluskey, Learning & Educaiton Officer at CLC Baltic Sea.
