The digitalization of society offers an unlimited field for innovation, and, with the support of information and communication technologies (ICT), we are transitioning towards a rapidly evolving context of novel, unexpected technological, societal, and industrial challenges. One of these is the employability of IT graduates, a challenge in the context of a rapidly evolving environment featuring novel technologies.
The European task force comprises four leading Universities and four corporate partners from France, Germany, Italy and Romania. It aims at gathering companies’ needs and priorities, and developing and implementing a relevant evolutionary process of 4 seminars, far beyond a classical student’s exchange framework or a new ICT module.
FIT EUROPE aims to create a platform which enables the industrial and academic participants to develop methods and practices, analyse social and/or economic impacts of emerging technologies and to produce new knowledge on how IT can contribute to boundary-breaking innovations that will enable ambitious development and growth in intelligent socio-technical futures, all of which combine to realise the goal of educating “Future IT leaders for a Multicultural, Digital Europe”.
