The third thematic workshop of the Creative Skills Europe project took place at the Berlin University of the Arts on the 22nd and 23rd of March 2018.
In Berlin we focused on digitisation and innovation.
We looked into innovative training tools and pedagogies that are currently being tested in our sectors to make training even more accessible and relevant. We also explored how to rethink training schemes to foster artistic and technical innovation in the digital world but also in the cultural venues themselves.
In a second phase of our discussions, as training models are evolving and as competences are acquired in different ways in the course of a life time, we looked into ways for individuals to valorise their competences and have them recognised by employers and peers. What technological tools already exist in this field and what is in development?
We finally listed some of the funding opportunities available at EU level to develop national and cross-border skills initiatives and addressed, through examples of cooperation projects implemented in our sectors, the main challenges and opportunities offered by those schemes.
