Event Description

TEAC (Telecentre Europe Annual Conference) is the annual meeting point for all non-profit and non-governmental organisations interested in digital empowerment through digital skills and technology.

This year the event forms part of the I-LINC project on future employability skills for young people and will be hosted by Belgian member Digipolis Ghent at the NH Gent Belfort Hotel in Ghent. Central theme for the conference will be “Digital skills for future work”. 

Day 1 (Thursday 6th October) will be focused on policy and practice around digital skills for future technologies and modes of employment. Delegates will then consider the future needs of citizens and plan for interventions that will support them. Day 2 (Friday, 7th October) will provide further in-depth discussion on future skills for learning and recruitment, how industry and government can help organisations to adapt, with some practical ‘how to’ sessions. It will also provide a forum to discover the learning from specific transferable projects of the member organisations.

The culmination of the conference on Friday evening will be the Telecentre Europe Awards 2016 ceremony to recognise the best individuals and organisations in digital inclusion across Europe.

Delegates will also be able to preview the Ghent Digital Interactive Fair on Saturday 8th October.
