Huawei held the 2nd European Talent Summit in Athens to celebrate the achievements of its talent cultivation programs during the year.
The official theme was “Creating a Sustainable Future for European Talent Together,” this year’s event gathered 80 outstanding students and 100 representatives from the governments.
Radoslaw Kedzia, Vice President of Huawei’s CEE & Nordic Region, said in his keynote: “Talent is essential for Europe to pursue its initiatives like digitalization and sustainable development. This is why we need to come together and build an open talent ecosystem for shared success. Huawei has always attached great importance to talent cultivation, and it has been one of our top priorities in Europe. Over the past decade, we have trained more than thirty thousand ICT professionals in this region.”
“It is estimated that in Europe, about 20% of adults lack basic digital skills. Talented Youth can contribute to closing the gap not only by expanding and adopting opportunities offered by new and smart technologies, but also by working with the older generation in shaping the digital future,” said David Atchoarena, Director of UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning.
