Workshop "Competences and Skills in the Governance of a Digitally Transformed Society" Oct 30-31 2019

On the 30th and 31st of October 2019 we held the fifth workshop of the project titled Competences and Skills in the Governance of a Digitally Transformed Society.

This workshop covers the third theme of the project concerning the skills and competences needed by citizens in the current and future European society. The workshop examined which new (digital) skills and competences might become strategic in the future for the development of an inclusive and fairer society. It also investigated new ways through which digital technologies could foster citizens' learning and participation.

The idea for this workshop comes from the assumption that it is not possible to understand which new forms of governance are emerging in the existing context of digital transformation without taking into account the competences and skills that allow (or hinder) citizens' participation in the current data-driven society.

This workshop was aimed to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss the emerging competences needed by citizens to gain voice and take part into the governance of a European digitally transformed society.

The presentations were structured in the following six panels:
