International Experts Meeting

07.01.2019 -  


January 16-17, 2019, Joseph-von-Fraunhofer-Straße 1 (Virtual Training and Development Center) in 39106 Magdeburg

In the digital era, working and business processes as a whole will increasingly be influenced by diverse dynamic changes.

A remarkable share of the population in many countries worldwide are employed in the informal economy. This target group is likewise affected by these dynamic developments: the technological transition influences qualification requirements of numerous workers and entails corresponding change processes for technical vocational education and training (TVET) systems.

  • Which qualification requirements match the demands of tomorrow’s world of work?
  • How does the informal economy respond to the technological transition in partner countries of the development cooperation and which opportunities and/or challenges are coinciding with that?
  • Which interventions in the frame of TVET and targeted to employees of the informal economy can be utilized to address specific emerging requirements?

These and other key questions will be the focus of discussions during the international expert talk, which is organized by GIZ on January 16-17 on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Development and Cooperation (BMZ).

Participating experts from German as well as from international organisations and institutions (political, economic, public, TVET) are involved to share their different perspectives.

Keynote speeches, impulses, panel discussions and working groups will provide opportunities to exchange experiences regarding existing and envisaged approaches with the aim to derive new strategies and recommended interventions.

The event will be broadcasted live over: (livestream available as of Jan 16 2019)
