Student event

Adapting to a changing labour market: Digital competencies for public managers 

This event is hosted by CIVICA*, Executive Master of Public Administration and the Centre for Digital Governance. The event is part of the Careers in Digital Governance event series hosted by the Centre for Digital Governance. 

With the increasing digitalisation and new developments such as big data, open data and artificial intelligence the work of government is fundamentally changing. What type of competencies and skills will be required for the future of government? What are key challenges and demands on public leaders to successfully manage digital transformation? How can professionals acquire and develop the necessary digital skills and competencies?

The event will be moderated by Gerhard Hammerschmid, Professor of Public and Financial Management and Director of the Centre for Digital Governance. 

This event is organised for students and alumni of the CIVICA partners and other members of the CIVICA community. Others interested in the event are welcome to sign up as well.

Registration is closed.
