Today, societies, governments and businesses recognize the pressing need to build comprehensive talent management and development programs more than ever before. This is based on the need for an innovative workforce, more resilient institutions to adapt to the rapid changes, and the changes in skills necessary for the future.
The key challenge for growing industry talent is to develop it in a continuous path: a complete life cycle from all levels of education to employment, based on accelerating changes, market needs and future jobs.
It is, therefore, important to design a program to develop national talent by building a successful and sustainable path. This can contribute to the labor market with high-level skills which take into account future requirements. We will be incorporating input from national and international stakeholders from business, government and academia.
This program aims to close the gap between the current higher education programs and the needs of the future economy through two programs, one for technical university students and one for recent technical graduates.
