The European Commission is organising a Workshop on education, training and skills for the electronic/photonic components and smart/embedded systems to take stock of what was achieved through EC funded projects and to define concrete recommendations for future implementation.

The Workshop will be held on 5 May 2014 in Brussels from 09h30 to 16h00 (Avenue Beaulieu 25, Room S1, Brussels). It is expected that the discussions, conclusions and recommendations of this Workshop will be communicated amongst others to the Electronics Leaders Group set up by VP Kroes and the board of the Photonic Public Private Partnership and be used as input to the HORIZON 2020 Work Programme 2016-2017.
Topics that will be addressed at the Workshop include: education and training needs of the industry, means for effective delivery, and concrete actions to fulfil these needs. In addition to getting first-hand information on ongoing projects, the workshop offers an opportunity to discuss with experts topics that are essential for a next generation and the European industry.
