What’s happening at this year’s Skills Summit?

Guest speakers: Hear what end users think about skills training.

Invited speakers from end user groups describing the impact and value of data and digital research skills training. What value do researchers, infrastructure managers, data scientists, or industry stakeholders place on skills training?

Working meetings: Come ready to roll up your sleeves. Share with and learn from peers.

Designed to engage and motivate collaborative action on the big nuggety issues facing our training communities.

  • What skills and for whom?
  • Do capability frameworks help?
  • What does resourcing, coordination and collaboration look like for ensuring workforce development for skills trainers?

Ample opportunities are planned to ensure we all (re)connect in-person and in consequential ways.
