In the framework of the Connecting Tomorrow conference, which took place from 5th to 7th of October 2021 at LuxExpo the Box, a workshop was organised by the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition with the support of Digital Luxembourg.
Around 70 students responded to our invitation to take part in the discussions. The objective of this workshop was to encourage young people to express themselves on connectivity opportunities, such as 5G, with a focus on the skills and professions of the future. Divided into small groups, the exchanges were initiated by professionals, around different themes such as Health, Mobility, Entrepreneurship, Smart Cities, Internet of Things (IoT) or Gaming.
After a brainstorming session, each team was able to present its ideas, its understanding of the issues at stake and its training needs.
A real sharing of experiences where the students were able to exchange and create a network with professionals from Luxembourg.
