Talent 21 organized by DTU Compute brings universities, entrepreneurs and business leaders together for a debate (in Danish) on how best we can in the future satisfy the strong demand for talent in Denmark, this Monday 10 June.

How do we educate technical talent when technologies evolve exponentially? Objective-C programming may be relevant today, but when the first experts in Objective-C graduate, Objective-C will probably no longer be relevant. How do we handle this? What is the role of universities in this? And what about the ATS institutes? What role companies can play?

The purpose of the meeting is to:

  1. Communicate challenges on all sides of the table: Entrepreneurs, business leaders and universities
  2. Develop a task force whose purpose is to ensure dialogue between entrepreneurs, managers and universities.
  3. Establish an active and measurable ‘to do’ list for how we can bring the challenge closer to a solution.

A solid stream of talent is an important piece of the puzzle for how we keep our businesses going with huge growth potential. Will you help? Register for your free ticket and help shape the agenda.
