Date: 2nd February 2024
14:00 – 18:00
Venue: Valletta Design Cluster, 25, Bull Street Il-Belt Valletta, VLT 1570, Malta

The event will bring together key stakeholders to create a dialogue, exchange and inspire around the challenge of Malta’s skill gap.

Higher education plays a vital role in meeting the demands of a changing labour market, and has been leveraged by several countries (including Canada and Australia) to become a catalyst for the attraction of a talented workforce.

How can Malta’s stakeholders work to overcome the labour market’s pressing challenges? We will explore this topic with insights from experts in education, skills and international mobility.

The event will include a networking wine apéritif with wine from Viniculture.
