“Skills in demand” roundtable discussion by DEF’s “Center for the Future of Work”

A great start for our newly formed “Center for the Future of Work” on June 30th. Delphi Economic Forum’s forward-looking initiative took off with a high-level roundtable on “skills in demand” in the Greek economy, presenting a thought-provoking survey by the National Technical University of Athens with the support of Microsoft Hellas.

Four Government Ministers, Rectors and other prominent academics from the largest Greek Universities and top HR, Digital and C-level executives from large employers took part in the discussion which took place in the King George Hotel in Athens. The main issue: what skills are needed in today’s world and how we can mobilize resources from the private and public sector to address this critical issue for the future of the Greek economy.

The discussion was based on the findings of the research "The Challenge of Thriving in the Digital Age: A Snapshot of Skills in Demand'' conducted by the Theoretical and Applied Economics and Law (TAEL) Lab of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and Delphi Economic Forum. The survey marks the first edition of “Delphi Insights”, which are periodic concise presentations of key topics and issues based on evidence-based scientific analysis, with the goal of informing the world of work and actors seeking to influence policy making.

Delphi Economic Forum is very proud to be working together with the Hellenic Republic’s General Secretariat for Digital Governance and Simplification of Procedures, contributing to the national effort to bridge the digital gap and upgrade the digital skills in Greece.
