43rd Edition - New Delhi

Augmenting Skills, Accelerating Growth

It’s Skills Revolution! Should we be left behind? Technology transformation is happening at disruptive pace impacting regions, sectors and organizations in different ways. In the past, transformation took decades; even centuries. Today, it is happening at an unprecedented pace, yet the outcome is not predetermined. Human ingenuity and preference will be the lynchpin for how we leverage technology in our lives and businesses. In all future scenarios, helping people to get skilled in this fast-changing world of work will be what that ensures their employability and it must also happen at speed and scale to accelerate growth.

ICT Academy BRIDGE, the event that connects government policy-makers, industry experts and academic leaders, will be focusing on the theme "Augmenting Skills, Accelerating Growth" to set an agenda for leaders to help people upskill and future-proof themselves, which is going to be the defining challenge of our time. The conference is a platform where visionaries lay out their blueprint for the right skills mix that would make existing and upcoming workforce to augment rather than compete with technology. It is the only event addressing the stakeholders and leaders in the process of bridging the industry & academia towards an accelerated growth path of the nation.

The conference provides opportunities for the stakeholders to explore the exciting convergence of exponential technologies, connect with new people and ideas, and co-create a better India together.
