Talents and STEAM – the future of work
Traditional jobs are being taken over by automated systems and robots. This has led to the creation of new jobs, which require a completely different set of skills. Companies, that wish to survive in the competitive market place, must be quick to adapt to meet the customers’ needs. The need for talented workers, who are capable of supporting innovation and creating new technologies, is vast. Where to find these talents? How to support them, so they can reach their full potential?
Key Note speeches:
Roya Mahboob (CEO of Digital Citizen Fund)
Panel discussion: „How to find talented workers?“
Lunch and networking @ Prototron meeting area
Innovations in space technology – no longer just science fiction
Thorough research of the solar system has paved the way for new ambitious plans in space travel and space tourism. Companies in the private sector are looking for ways to expand business outside of our atmosphere. If we are indeed destined to inhabit more than one planet, when can that happen? What are the technologies needed and how far are we from building them?
Key Note speech:
Jaan Praks (Aalto University, Head of Satellite Project)
Panel discussion: „Could we really move to space?“
