Peter Pellegrini is the Minister of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic.
"As the Digital Champion for Slovakia I will primarily focus on ensuring that this position is perceived as a bridge between the public and expert community to facilitate implementation of ideas and creation of conditions to improve citizens’ everyday life. My personal ambition from the position I held as Digital Champion is to put the objectives of Digital Agenda in real life and bring measurable objectives for Slovak citizens".
In 2012 Mr Pellegrini initiated the School Dance project, which is a unique project that connects basic principles such as creating a team, recording a dance video and making interactive posters. In total 300 schools and kindergartens participated and were over 800,000 page views.
"The goal with the School Dance project is to create a generation of young people that are creative, skilled in the field of ICT and well prepared for future employment. And at the same time they are having fun!"
