Key moments

We need to automatize the process and introduce changes in the data, and this will require a stronger cooperation with the school systems.
Gianpietro Benedetti
New technology platforms will create opportunities for jobs. Skills play a key role and we need to look at the education systems and teach our children to be creative, to collaborate and learn.
Murat Sönmez
The labour market is turning global. Many companies will soon be forced to compete on the global market, rather than within just one country.
Stanislav Protassov

Stephen Brobst

Stefan Hoechbauer
