Revitalizing India through New Age Skills

In the past decade, breakthroughs in advanced technologies have marked the beginning of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. According to the report by WEF, by 2025, the machines and algorithms will share significant work hours equal to that of human beings. In addition, the global slowdown brought by the COVID-19 has impacted economies, labour markets, work environment and further accelerated the digital transformations. These lead to the creation of new job roles, new skills, and a dynamic business environment. Academic institutions that are already on a war foot to catch up with the evolving industry trends must adopt a holistic approach, creating active linkages and coordination between educators, students, skills, and employers, and ensuring effective collaboration between industries, governments, and peer institutions.

ICT Academy BRIDGE is an industry-institute interaction event that brings academicians, industry experts, and policymakers on a single platform. The conference will deliberate the innovative methods to enhance industry-institute collaborations, augment industry-centric learning, and develop multi-disciplinary skills and technology essentials for building a resilient workforce. The conference will host a series of sessions featuring speakers from diverse industries to explore and deliberate on the existing skill development strategies of the stakeholders and required rethinking to suit the future working world.
